    Cat Danger from Vaping

    Wondering what people's thoughts are on vaping around a cat. I've been doing research on issues around PG and cats. Apparently PG could adversely effect the cat. I've read lots of debate on the amounts, conditions and other factors.

    Some say vaping is fine around the cat, others say not and some reported very severe health conditions of their cat after vaping around it over a period of time. Keep in mind these reports were from strangers over the Internet. Who knows if it's a shill for a health authority/ anti Ecig group or is wrongly associating the vapor with something else. Also some people saying their vet says it's ok. So what do you all think?

    I'm not sure either. I've never heard of any risks to a cat with being exposed to pg via vaping- doesn't mean it's not possible I just haven't personally heard anything about it. I have a cat and a dog and have been vaping in the house since I started. I've never mentioned it to my vet but both go for regular checkups and they're both in great health.

    Pussy always grabs my attention but never thought about vaping and the effects.
    We are all cloud chasers. Otherwise we would all be chewing gum or putting on patches.

    If you do a search on Google for "vaping health cats" you'll find lots of info. I'd vape outside before hurting my cat.

    Did a search and the first article was this:

    Will Vaping PG (Propylene Glycol) E-Liquid Harm My Cat?

    I had no idea, so thanks, it's good to know. I'm not sure if the exposure they would get from being around a vaper indoors would be high enough to do harm, but it's important to know the risks. I vape high vg..pg bothers me and can't vape anything higher than 50/50 I try to do 80vg/20pg . In the article they suggest switching to vg so that may be a good option.

    Cats are more sensitive to PG, which is why there isn't PG in cat food but there is in dog food. Probably what started all of this.

    One reason why you shouldn't feed your cat dog food.

    However my cat gets into the dog food all the time, and he's not dead. So it would take a large amount of PG or even a larger amount of vapor to harm your cat.
