I found a 3 mo old kitten living in my siding on Sunday oct 16. I brought the cat inside and washed it with dawn dish soap. I kept finding little grains in its fur and thought it was from the kitty litter until i found a flee… and another one so I promptly bought hartz flee shampoo and washed her well. I found more flea on her face and near her eyes, so I washed her face again and saw some flea fall off on to the floor and promptly killed them. I haven’t had her to long and I do have a spray I used in her hiding spots. I have 1 or 2 bites on my arms from yesterday and most of the fleas seem to be gone now. What else should I do and will I have a high chance of an infest. I am currently vacuuming washing and drying anything the kitten was on. Please let me know if I should take any other steps. Thank you, Jason
I have recently discovered fleas on my cats. I was reading your very informative articles and saw that this product, Precor 2000, is helpful in getting rid of fleas in the house, carpets and on furniture. However, I read that the active ingredient is permethrin, which is toxic to cats. If I spray it in the house, can it hurt my cats? If it will, what can I use to get rid of fleas in the house so that the cats won’t get re-infested?
I have just got a kitten six weeks old an he has fleas I was wondering how best to treat him and my house as soon as I can I have only had him for two days.
