|Oy, I feel like a broken record with the vaseline thingy. No offense at all, I just wish more people understood that it's not safe for kitties at all! Purrcy's momma can tell you that also, she's a nurse. Here's some info on mineral oil:
Mineral Oil: An oil manufactured from crude oil, it's a mixture of liquid hydrocarbons separated from petroleum. When administered orally, a cat may aspirate (breathe in) the oil. Mineral oil binds the fat soluble vitamins A, D and E and carries them unabsorbed out of the body.
Ask any holistic vet and they will tell you the same thing. Clear aloe gel is safe as long as it's only 100% aloe gel, clear and nothing else.
