Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
My name is***** I am a 2003 UC Davis graduate. I am reviewing your question.
The amount of oil on your kitty is not a concern. If you really need to get the oil off, you can use "Dawn dish soap" for a mini bath. That is fine to use, and commonly used as a quick way to get fleas off a kitten.
Otherwise, I am not concerned about that amount of oil on the skin.
I hope that information is helpful. Please continue to ask questions if I have not fully responded to your request. My goal is to provide the most information that I can without the ability to do my own examination and testing.
Understood. If Alfie is "annoyed" by it or really trying to lick it off, than the bath would be worth pursuing. On the chance you see any type of skin irritation caused by the oil, I would also do the bathe as a precaution.
