Subject: Plumoses and Cats
IP: Logged

I realize this may seem like a strange question, but was wondering if maybe you could help me. I have dried green plumosus in a bowl with a candle in my house and my cat keeps wanting to eat it, I have looked through the web for advice and also asked my vet which they aren't sure either whether it is poisonous to cats. if you have any information on this I would appreciate a reply. any advice is greatly appreciated. I just love the look of the plumosus but don't want to harm my cats either.

Plumoses is not poisonous. It is probably dyed and the dye would not be very good but not life threatening. The cat probably plays with it more then actually digests it so I would not be concerned (except for the plumoses).

There is a product, which can be purchased at any of the large craft stores (e.g. Michael's). I apologize but I am not sure of the name except I know that 'Apple' is in it. Maybe Bitter Apples, really not sure but I have had multiple customers tell me that it works. I think you spray it on your drieds and the smell (which is not detectable by humans) deters the cat.

Good luck,

D. Scott
