You can use a triple Antibiotic ointment like Neosporin , Polymycin, or Bacitrican, but you cannot use Zinc orZinc Oxide becuse of its toxictity to animals. Try cleaning with some Betadine first then use a triple Antibiotic ointment on the affected area for a cut or an abrassion. If the area is very deep you may have to have your Vet address the area, since cats are prone to abscesses. Joan
Triple Antibiotic is fine and safe to use. Happy New year! Joan
