Cats  --- Cats generally have an aversion to citrus oils and these may be useful for detering cats without actually harming them. In addition, cats are highly sensitive to essential oils and some oils can be toxic or fatal such as Thyme and Oregano. Any essential oils applied to cats should be highly diluted - 1/10 the amount of oil needed for a human - and the oils should be applied to the cat's paws only.

Mosquitoes  --- Please be aware that there are different species of mosquitoes. Aedes aegypti, Aedes albopictus, Anopheles dirus, and Culex quinquefasciatus are 4 common types. Please see: Mosquito Repellents in Thailand Pages 11 and 12 show repellency measurements for a few essential oils, deet, and IR3535. Furthermore, at the end of page 14, vanillin is mentioned as a key synergistic component to the mosquito repellency of essential oils. So, mixing Vanilla or Tonka Bean or Balsam de Peru with the other essential oils listed below may likely yield an effective defense against mosquitoes depending on the specific mosquito species in your area.
