Hello and thanks for researching this very important question!

Cinnamon is NOT toxic to cats, dogs or people...make sure you use a product that has been processed for human consumption to make sure it is pure.

It may make your cat Sneeze since it is pretty finely ground, and attractively scented!!

The remedy does work as well as black pepper does to. The cinnamon is supposed to work better.

I think then that the cinnamon would be less irritating to your pets than the pepper, for sure!

Thanks for the tip!!

God bless,
