Similarly, you may ask, are ant traps safe for cats?

How do I get rid of ants without harming my cat?
For a minor infestation, soak a large absorbent sponge in sugar water. Place it near the ant trail and let it sit for a day. Wash off the dead ants, soak in more sugar water and place back near the trail until you no longer see any dead ants when squeezing out the sponge.
