    hi one of my 4 month old kittens keeps trying to suckle my dog.. the dog is very passive and eventually gets fed up enough to move, is there anything that cats dislike the taste of that i can rub on my dogs tummy but that will obviously not be harmful to either cat or dog ?.

    try rubbing orange or lemon on your dogs tummy cats are supposed to hate citrus things. Mind you your dog might be a bit sticky so i don't know that this is even good advice lol. :D

    Citrus definitely. My cats strongly disapprove of wine and tea, but I don't think it would be good to dip your dog in chardonnay! :eek:

    You can get citrus wipes at the pet shop. They're supposed to be a natural flea deterant (NOT!!!!) but they would probably do the job in keeping the kitts off the dogs bits! :)

    This is a good idea plus the wipes are cheap.
