Cat runs away when I wear certain scents. Don’t wear perfume when grooming a new cat.

I applied some “Sweet Melon” hand cream a few minutes ago. My cat Emma, who had been comfortably lounging on the table in front of me, jumped up and walked away. I’d never seen such a strong reaction to a scent!  I put my hands close to her to see if it was indeed the scent that was pushing her away. She moved away from my hands.

Scents can make a big impression on cats. I don’t wear scents when I groom.

It makes sense to me that cats might hate some scents. People hate some scents. Cats have noses. People have noses.
