You and your company apparently don't know much about cats. For starters, cats are not small dogs. Their livers are quite unique, lacking the necessary enzymes to metabolize certain compounds in essential oils. With repeat exposure, these compounds will accumulate to toxic levels, causing liver damage and even death. Therefore, essential oils are poisonous to cats. Plaque Attack contains essential oils. Particularly bad are peppermint and thyme. Unfortunately Plaque Attack isn't the first company to make products dangerous to cats, but maybe you can pass the following info on to someone there so they can remedy the situation.
