    Well there are NO medicine that you can put on then that young. So what I just tell you is to pick them off when you are holding her and comb and comb until they are old enoung to get the flea medicine.

    First of all, the kittens are very delicate under 6 weeks, so don’t give them your typical flea bath, it does have toxins in it and could harm them. It is difficult to handle fleas on very young kittens, so I recommend that you call a shelter and ask for their advice on your specific kittens at their age. Also, the mother most likely does have fleas, but you just can’t see them.
    One more thing, kittens will not be ready for new homes until they are at least 8 weeks old – more than two weeks after their mother weans them. Many people don’t recommend taking them away from their mother until 10-12 weeks. You can call your local shelter or veterinarian to verify this.

    Try Advantage. I don’t know if they sell it at stores, but you might have to get it from a vet. It works really good, though!
