Cat Obsessed With Dryer Sheets?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Not sure where to post this, but I was wondering if anyone else's cat was like this.

Pudge is completeley in love with Gain Original Fresh Dryer Sheets (not sure of other scents as I tend to stick to one).

If I'm folding laundry and she happens by when a dryer sheet's on the floor she'll run in and start rubbing her face on it, rolling around, holding it between her paws, etc...the same way she reacts to catnip.

The other cats will just watch her as if she's gone nuts, and when she's done they'll home in on the sheet then sit there looking around as if to say "huh?" and walk off.

Anyone else's cats nip out on dryer sheets? Different scents, or just one?

Oh my Petals does that. If she finds one, she will carry it around! I try to watch that because I can't imagine that is good for her to be in her mouth!

Strangely enough, that is one thing Trout doesn't pay attention to

I always heard they were not good for cats

Mine don't pay them any attention, but then they probably never see them either

My girls have a field day with them if one is discovered (I'm usually really good at grabbing them first) and will try to lick them.

Ben is afraid of them! I have put them on counter tops to keep him off

Is this true? (must be, right? since it's on the ASPCA website?)
http://www.aspca.org/site/PageServer...csoftenersheet

(Saw that some folks here also have kitties that like dryer sheets...so I thougt I'd add it to this thread)

Munchie loves dryer sheets...he loves fresh laundry actually, and will roll around it in or make himself a "cave" and hang out while we fold. We usually let him play around with the used dryer sheets (never the fresh ones)...he doesn't bite it but likes to roll around on the used sheet...or sometimes I'd make him a little used-dryer-sheet-hat that he could wear while hanging out on the warm laundry

...but I guess if the ASPCA is right, no more used dryer sheets for him

I recently discovered that dryer sheets were the cause of my terrible, painful skin problems -- even the ones for sensitive skin were causing me to have redness and burning, especially on my face. So I certainly wouldn't think they could possibly be good for kitties...

My cat doesn't bother them.
We use fresh ones to wipe on the dogs when the bugs are really bad during the summer. It helps. The dog's coats stay very nice, shiny, and healthy, no one has had an allergic reaction. But then again, no one licks it and tries to eat the sheets either...

Munchie doesn't lick or eat the sheets either, but the website says it could be problematic b/c the cat rolls around on the sheet & then licks its own fur, thereby inadvertently ingesting the chemicals (cationic agents , I think they said, which can cause GI upset or worse) <<sigh>>
