I thought my cat had sores on her neck but they were ticks and the coconut oil being on her neck just attracted more ticks! I felt so sorry for her I had to bathe her and get them off. Was it the sweetness of the coconut oil that attracted them to her skin? It really made me upset because I thought coconut oil on a cats skin was healthy!! Please can someone reply to this. I still give her a bit to eat she loves it but I feel so guilty putting it on her neck thinking she had sores and they were ticks from the coconut oil!!
