Is cocoa butter dangerous to cats?

by Jocelynn

I had used some cocoa butter on my body and my cat seems determined to lick it. I'm worried that it could cause him harm, I can't seem to find anything on the topic when I try and search for it. Any help would be great, TIA.

Well i am no expert on chemical makeup of such substances as coca butter. i assume that if it was dangerous to ingest that it would say on the packaging. Like anything that is meant to go on the skin and not inside the body that it won't do much harm if only a little is consumed but it is not advisable that large quantities are eaten.

Your cat is probably just attracted by the sweet smell of the cocoa butter cream. Just try to dissuade him from licking it but if he does get a sneaky lick i wouldn't worry too much.

best wishes Kate
