My 18-week old kitten got a little bit of Maleleuca Oil off of a bug bite after it was applied to on my foot. He took a step back, and licked his lips with disgusted expression. When I looked it up it said it was highly toxic to animals. What should I do? My mom doesn't believe it's toxic and refuses to believe that (I think)it could kill my cat.

I would keep a close eye on her. If she just got a taste, it may not be enough to do her any harm. HOwever, if she starts throwing up, not eating, etc take her to a vet right away. If you are really worried about it, Call or drop by your local vet and ask their opinion about it.

Good luck
