Re: Beans talk/now DE


well, Kitty...I don't know. All the articles I read were written by
herbalist and naturalists that even feed it to their animals (mixed in
with their food) for internal parasites...but it is not proven that it
really works for that. And cats lick themselves a lot, but it is
harmless...I don't think it would be any different than rolling in dirt
and dust and then giving themselves a bath. If he is an outside cat...I
would try it...and then reapply twice a month if you can get him to sit
still that often. The only drawback is that it does leave a dusty
feeling on your hands when you pet them..but it goes away in 2-3 days.
Good luck. It works and is very cost effective. With all the dogs, cats
and animals that I have...I had to find some way to control them better.

Jesse, does the DE have to be food grade? I have some here that I bought
for gardening. I wonder if I could use it on Woody. How often would you
reapply?
