Is the liquid in your galileo thermometers toxic?  Our cat broke ours and got some of the liquid on her and is licking herself.

Hi Catina,

The liquid in AcuRite Galileo Thermometers is 100% paraffin. Parrafin is flammable so do not expose to extreme heat or open flame. The colored bulbs are filled with paraffin and 3.4% dye. The liquid is non-toxic. The dye inside colored bulbs may stain fabric. If the thermometer breaks, clean the area with warm, soapy water. More information can be found in the instructions on our website:
Please let us know if you need anything else. Thank you.
