Can You Use Essential Oils for Cat Care? Yes, you can! Cats are small and sensitive. Use less than a drop of oil at a time - and it essential oils are not suggested for pregnant females and kittens. Dilute with coconut oils if needed. Do not use Melaleuca on your cats. Always consult your Veterinarian before using oils on your cats. I suggest to only use topically and always test before using so they don't have a reaction. Apply oils between toes and on the pad of the foot when doing foot applications. Avoid getting oils in eyes; flush with milk if needed.
