Hi everyone I need sunscreen recommendations, I love hanging around on the screened porch off and on during the day, and my mom's scared to let me out there as much and I want to for fear of a sunburn and sunspots. Is it ok to use baby sunscreen? or do they make a sunscreen specifically for pets?

Hello! As I have read on other posts, it is probably really best to have kitty avoid direct sunlight. Here, though, is a relatively good article about sunscreen and pets (URL below). Remember, though, cats lick themselves, so sunscreen is probably not the best idea... Just my two cents, though!
