I saw in another thread that a lady rubbed her cats with it? I think? I haven't had a response, so maybe someone else can answer it for me? I've never heard of such?

The "Vanilla Trick" as we call it here is when you dab a small amount of vanilla on two kitties' chins and at the base of their tails on their backs. You do this during introductions, when one has been/is sick, or when one has been to the vet and the other kitty is VERY unhappy. Cats recognize each other by scent, so if one smells different (vet smell or illness) they will see each other as invading their territory. The vanilla makes them smell alike, which they view as being friendly.
I'll move this to Behavior.
