its because it tastes so good! and they love to lick it off you! any cream that is! i have ezcema and dry skin so can imagine how much i get licked off? but do have it under control and if i say no Jessie will leave it aloneMy dogs, and cats, love to lick my body cream or, in the cats case my emulsifying ointment, both of these contain liquid paraffin. Jess last night literally licked the cream from the container, Lucky the cat will go for the emulsifying ointment jar or any left behind on the shower floor after my shower. Do my animals have something short in their diet? I haven't noticed that they're constipated, their coats are in good condition. The dogs food have omega 3+6 added, so why are they going after my cream?
