    Cats and GoldBond Medicated Lotion?

    My skin has been very dry lately so I bought some GoldBond Medicated Lotion because it works wonders for dry skin.
    Except...everytime I put it on my cat goes crazy and tries to lick it off of my arms and legs. I of course don't let her because I am not sure how healthy that is for a cat, but I was just wondering if anyone who has used this and has an animal has noticed they are attracted to the scent. The smell sort of reminds me of Vapo-Rub. I wonder what is in the lotion that my cat is attracted to.

    Hmmm I have not noticed it with other lotions but I will see what she does when I put on another kind.

    I don't know about cats - but anytime anyone in my house puts on ANY kind of lotion, the dog goes absolutely CRAZY. He keeps trying to lick it off, and smelling it. It's really weird, but I guess it's normal for dogs since so many of them do it.

    Cats love licking you. It's not horrible if they don't get too much of it. Cats love the taste of the oils on our skin and if you get it scented sometimes they go crazy. My cat Tuesday (RIP) used to always stop cleaning herself and start to clean me if I started to pet her when she was cleaning herself. If I had lotion she went crazy. So I guess it depends on how much they love the taste of your skin!

    Well she never just licks my arms for no reason, it's always when I put this stuff on so I was just wondering if it were the specific lotion, or if it is all things like that.
    I thought it was kind of funny that she would like it because it smells absolutely horrible.

    Cats have weird taste buds. :-) Is there some sort of plant in it? Because if it's scented like a plant or has plant abstract of somesort in it, that may be the reason why she loves it.
