Every cat owner knows that cats are just plain weird. If they were humans, they would either be locked up in an insane asylum or running the government. That’s why some people are curious why cats seem attracted by the smell of Bengay, an ointment used to treat sore joints and muscles.

Apparently cats like the smell of menthol, which is related to the mint family. Just make sure you keep ointments of Bengay away from your cat so it doesn’t try ingesting it. Cats may know what they like but they’re not always careful about what they do so make sure you keep your house safe for your cats.
