My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with interest in Feline health. You cannot use Camphor around or near a cat. It is Toxic to pets. I do suggest a plain steam vaporizer in the room, or you can take Tucker in a steamy bathroom and sit with him to reduce congestion. The plain steam is fine but please be careful so he does not get too close and get burned. Joan

Good Morning,

I am checking in on Tucker, to see how he is doing. I hope the congestion is better and the plain steam helped. Cats are very sensitive to chemical, so I wanted to be sure all that was used was plain steam. Please let me know if the information I supplies was helpful.
