I know that salt lamps are made of salt rock, and I know that most animals are evolved to crave for salt, because of its rarity in nature. For example, hamsters like to lick human fingers for the salt in the sweat. So, there is a good chance that my cat might come and lick it from time to time.
So, if I get a salt lamp and if I make sure that my cat won't lick it (I plan to take it into my cupboard when I leave home), is there any reason to think that there might be other side effects for my cat? Also, if my cat becomes a salt junky, how can I recognise the symptoms of salt poisoning in a cat?
PS: I learnt about the concept of salt lamps today. Apparently, they are literally hollowed out salt rocks with a lamp inside. While Internet is full of its miraculous benefits, I believe the only benefit it gives is a pleasant light which might improve your mood a little. Still, I have a chance to get one for free and I think I like the light.
