I've been considering using Minoxidil for a few months now, but the biggest reason that I haven't is the fact that it is dangerous to cats. I work from home and my cat is really affectionate, so obviously I'm worried about poisoning him by coming into contact with him.

Any tips from fellow cat owners?

Washing my hands after application is pretty much all I do.

Thanks, how long have you been using it?

I've been using it for about eight months this time. I've used it before in the past but with little consistency. This time I've been very dedicated. I found that using the foam cuts down on the mess. The liquid was more difficult to control, and least for me. One of the reasons I wasn't consistent in the past was because I found applying the liquid inconvenient. I've begun to see growth in the last couple of months.

I've had my cats(Laverne and Shirley) for close to ten years and am pretty attached and I was worried about hurting them from minoxidil exposure. My hair is pretty short and that probably cuts down further on the chance of accidental contact.
