Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. I very much doubt if this will affect your cat in any way as regards ***** ***** and her health. But cats are very sensitive to smells so she may be a bit stressed and withdrawn for an hour or so.

2. The thing to do is just to observe for the next two hours, she should have returned to normal in that time.

But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if you become further concerned.

Regards,

Dr Scott

Thank you! I will watch her for the next few hours and get back to you if she isn't her usual self. Parts of her were damp so I wiped her with a damp rag hoping to remove the spray, but I have no idea if she licked any first.

Just a short note to thank you very much for the good rating, this is very much appreciated.

Please let me know how things go ...

Kindest regards,

Dr Scott
