Is he salivating or licking his lips a lot?
ok, no need. It is basically menthol and petroleum. If he had ingested a significant amount, he would be salivating and retching due to the heating effect. The fact that he is doing neither means that he did not ingest a significant amount, so he will be fine.
I am sure. Cats are very sensitive to things in their mouth. Anything they taste that is irritating will almost instantly make them salivate.
Besides, aspirin isn't toxic to cats. We use 1/2 of a 325 mg aspirin to slow clotting in cats with thrombotic disease. That 1/2 tablet will take 3 days to digest out of their system, but isn't toxic. And there's no way there's 325 mg of salicylate in that whole jar, let alone in the tiny amount he may have licked.
