How to Remove Glue from Cat's Fur

Updated on January 5, 2016

You are probably on this hub right now because your pet just got a little friendly with the glue and now they are getting a little too attached to it, right? Just kidding. Moving on, this hub does not necessarily be applied only to cats, this trick can also works on other animals such as dogs. When glue attached to your cat's fur, it is best to get rid of it as soon as possible. This is because when glue gets stuck on your cat's fur, this may cause pain and discomfort. Hence, your cat will try to remove the glue by grooming or licking the glue, sticky part and it may accidently ingesting the glue which is toxic. This is the guide to safely remove the glue using natural ingredients.

Things needed:

Cooking oil

Cat's shampoo



Step 1

Place your cat on your kitchen or toilet sink. This helps you to handle and rinse off its fur more easily.

Step 2

Dip your fingers in the cooking oil or you may also use a cotton ball and dip in the cooking oil. (Preferably use your finger)

Step 3

Rub gently on the area where the glue is attached. Rub until the glue is loosened and are completely removed.

Step 4

Take the cat's shampoo and clean its fur to remove the oil. After that, towel dries your pet.

Repeat the process if the glue is still there.

Side note:

  • If the glue is still there, you may clip or trim the fur on the area where the glue is attached. Don't worry as the fur may grow back naturally.
  • When you wash your cat, try to only use cat's shampoo available in the pet store. Don't ever use any other human's shampoo or cleaning products as it may contain chemicals that are harmful to your pet skin.
