    Calpol contains paracetamol which is very toxic for cats. I am sure inhaling it would be as dangerous as swallowing it. I wouldn't risk it. :(

    EDIT - have you tried Snufflebabe drops (for babies) to clear a blocked nose?

    Paracetamol is toxic if ingested. What's the ingredients of the plugin?

    ETA: Crossposted. I wouldn't risk it, OP. Your vet should be able to advise something if you call them.

    The plug in doesn't contain paracetamol.

    Might be worth googling the ingredients then.

    Says it contains a blend of essential oils including lavender, camomile and menthol. The lavender & camomile would be OK for cats to inhale, but not the menthol. Depends on what the other oils are as to whether they'd be safe for cats. Generally I avoid essential oils for cats because so many are unsafe for them.

    Actually, since they are essential oils, and not extracted with cats in mind, even the lavender and chamomile would not be safe for cats to inhale.

    I agree with yo and the others, I would not recommend using it.
