We adopted a 3 yr. old cat from a well known store. We were assured she had all her shots etc. and treated for fleas. However she does have fleas. Never having to treat fleas before, I went to store, purchased a brand of flea control. They do not sell Frontline or Advantage there. Will this work? I shook out all her bedding etc. and have it in the wash. Can you tell me if Borax as treatment is effective for carpeting etc. I don’t know what to do and don’t want them all over my home. She is in a seperate room right now while being introduced to an older cat so they haven’t spread and the older cat does not have them – yet. Does sprinkling Borax all over the carpeting and letting it sit for several hours or overnight actually work? Any other suggestions? Please help! PS. Kitty only has back claws but has scratched herself raw in the neck area. I keep combing her with a flea comb and constantly getting 5 or 6 off each time so I’m guessing they are in the carpet?
