It is critically important to use pesticides only according to their labeling. This is a good example of why that is important. Cats tend to be very sensitive to many types of pesticides. So the best course of action is to read the Sevin Dust label, if it lists cats then follow those directions. If it doesn't, there is likely a very good reason why it doesn't allow use on cats. There are many different labels for Sevin, so you will need to check your label and follow those instructions.
