    If you applied it right, just between the shoulder blades, they should not be able to get at it except on each other. And even then, once it dries, it should not be a problem. As long as you used the kind meant for cats, it doesn't contain a pesticide that is toxic to cats. They should be safe although the smell does bother my dog so I imagine their sensitive little noses won't like it either. I wouldn't be too worried unless they start to act funny. Shaking, drooling, lethargic, etc. If so then you should call the vet. But as long as it was Frontline for cats and not just some Hartz junk from Wal Mart you shouldn't need to be worried.

    DO make sure to keep an eye on them. If they continue to act strangely, see your vet. I (the human) had a bad allergic reaction to the Frontline that had been applied to a cat I adopted, and it's pretty potent stuff. But, it works. Just keep an eye on them for the time being--you know your cats better than anyone else, and will be able to tell if they are exhibiting odd behavior.
