When I had to use a humidifier for my cat Kira's congestion the vet said specifically NOT to use Vicks in it. If you need to use it at night for your own congestion, I would recommend closing the cats out of your bedroom.

Or instead of using it in your humidifier, use the Vapo-rub directly on your skin and keep the cat from licking it. check with your own people-doctor to make sure this is good for you as well. My grandson's pediatrician discourages my daughter from using Vicks in the humidifier.
