    Baby wipes vs pet wipes for my cat?

    Winterblue2 posted:
    Hello. My question is if baby wipes are safe for spot cleaning when my cat gets either a bit of wet litter between his toes or needs a bit of help cleaning his fur around the rear end area? I read the label on both but still not sure. I have the all over kitty bath wipes made especially for cats that will not take to a real bath. I use these to really wet him down then brush and comb him but I was wondering about cleaning a small area with the baby wipes. Thanks.

    While I doubt that the small amount of residue left by a baby wipe would harm your cat, I would use wipes especially formulated for cats to be safe. After all, babies don't lick themselves clean after using the wipes but cats do![br> [br>
