Tip on Summer Citronella Candle Safety for Your Cat

Use candles with care. Never use candles around pets if left unattended and keep them stored in an area inaccessible to pets. Exposure to candles can potentially result in severe burns and/or trauma to the face and/or paws of curious pets.

Keep citronella candles, insect coils and oil products out of the reach of pets. Ingestions can produce stomach irritation and possibly even central nervous system depression, and if inhaled, the oils could potentially cause aspiration pneumonia as well.
