I've read that aloe is toxic to cats, obviously if eaten, but what about if applied? I see many cat shampoo products boasting aloe, but I'd be concerned about them licking themselves after. Is this a real concern, or as long as it's rinsed properly, it's fine?

I reccommend HyLyt Shampoo.
It's great for Sphynx.
It's Hypoallergenic, easily rinsed.
Great for their skin.
Google for best price.

@tarallelogram welcome to sphynxlair. I know that Aloe Vera is toxic to cats if they eat the plant. But as far as I know the toxic is not in the shampoo. But to be sure best is to call a vet and ask it.
