Is it safe use coconut oil on a cats toes?
My cat has very dry toe pads at the moment, they're not cracked or anything. Just very, very dry, and I know some brands sell products for their pads to keep them healthy and moisturized but I don't have that right now sadly and so, I've read some different things saying to use cocoa butter, aloe vera, olive oil, all sorts of stuff. The most logical seeming one is coconut oil, because it isn't an outright liquid and will be easier to get on her feet without much fuss. I'm not worried about her licking it off because I plan to stay by her for a while, until whatever ends up being used "settles." But if she does somehow manage to, will it make her sick? Will simply absorbing it into her skin make her sick? Is there anything instead that I should use that you personally know of?
