So, I was making sandwiches and opened a jar of Gulden's Spicy Brown mustard and Cassi jumped up from a reclining position where she was watching me and was trying to get into the sandwich.  ummmm.....do cats eat mustard?  Will it hurt them?  I didn't let her have any. 

Ingredients:  Vinegar, Mustard Seed, Salt, Spices and Turmeric

Wow! I never heard that - I don't normally eat mustard but will  now "for medicinal purposes". As for the cats tasting un-cat-like things off our plates: probably many of our foods are safe for them to tiny-taste, except perhaps chocolate. Some pets just want to try what they see us enjoying.I have to keep one cat out of my cereal bowl (the cereal not the milk-I use soy milk), I have to keep another out of my salad bowl of all things. He likes the vinegary taste of the dressing-strange cat. We had a cat once that would always beg DH for chicken with barbq sauce. I did not approve but I am sure the cat got some as soon as my back was turned.

Fizzy got a taste of mustard once.  I can't remember whether it was Dijon or plain yellow, but she tore around the house, foaming from the mouth for about 10 minutes.  Very bad reaction to it Shocked  Since then, I've been careful not to let the cats near it.  FWIW Undecided

Gee whiz.  Thanks kathy and fizzy.  Yikes!  I was hoping it would be an appetite stimulant.   Embarrassed

I'd be careful with it. Mustard & water induces vomitting & is used in place of ipecac. Don't know how much would upset a cats stomach,but with them being so much smaller than we are,probably not much. Mustard & tumeric also help sore throats though.

Once my sister put her hand on an electric burner... ouch, it looked bad.  She had the coils blistered on her hand.  My room-mate at the time told her hurry put mustard.  We thought, this girl is crazy, but we did it... immediately it helped... both with the pain and the blistering, it really didn't blister and it was quite a bad burn.  (can you tell we were always brought up with a gas stove? hehe)  I know that they use the tumeric also with cancer for pets, not sure about people... it would be worth finding out...  I often wondered if I could give my dogs a bit of sandwich that had mustard... for some reason, I never have...?
