I use over the counter Icy Hot medicated Lotion for my pain, I have read both pros and cons about this. Every time I put this on my arms shoulder and chest my cat comes and attact me trying to lick it off of me. I had another cat who like the taste of Ben Gay. They also like the smell of it. I am trying to do research on whats in it that the cats may be lacking. Can you or anyone help with this mystery. Some cats like it while other ones don't

It's the Menthol. Menthol comes from a type of mint plant. If you've ever bought cat nip you'll notice that your cats go wild over it.
