It will not be harmful other than the bitter taste and a slight irritation to the mouth. You should rinse his mouth out with cold water if you can. He may foam at the mouth a little bit - it should resolve within 15 minutes or so. You can also give your kitty a small tsp of maalox liquid to help coat the GI esophagus.

Any vomiting or diarrhea or loss of appetite and you should consult a vet. Revolution has low toxicity to mammals, other than mouth irritation.

Hope that eases your mind!

Also - you can give the kitty a small amount of cow's milk to kill the taste and neutralize the acid. Don't give too much, or kitty may get diarrhea!
