    Does anyone know if black pepper is bad for cats? I put some on my floor to try and keep ants away and one of my cats started licking it and rolling in it. It was like she got into catnip. Thanks.

    It's safe....I've heard of some people using it to repel cats, so it's funny that she likes it so much!

    Might make her sneeze though if she gets it up her nose!

    I've used it in the past to discourage one of my cats from "going" in a corner.... It didnt work well (Don't believe everything you've read on the internet) but it didnt hurt any of them. Wierd that she likes it so much, mine sneezed lol
