My mother’s 12 week old indoor cat got outside a few times just outside the door and now has fleas. What is a good way to get rid of fleas that isn’t toxic? She used a name brand flea removal product and it was too strong for the small cat…

    You can wash her in Dawn dish soap. It kills the fleas and isn’t harmful to the cat. Keep it out of her eyes. If she tries to scratch you can wrap her in a towel and only unwrap the part that needs washed.

    IF YOUR kitten….HOUSE HAS FLEAS….
    I have a NATURAL remedy for getting rid of fleas in your house.
    Go to the Store and buy some 20 Mule Team BORAX.
    Then sprinkle it all over. Carpets, couch, bedding, pillows, pet beds, car, even wood floors. (NOT ON YOUR PET!)
    THEN VACCUME IT UP.
    What Boax does is coats the eggs … The eggs hatch deformed or unable to reproduce.
    You will have to do this 2 or 3x about a week apart in order to get all the egg cycles.
    FOR YOUR PET. Use the flea killer that is on the market or use a flea comb (this is also a head lice comb) especially for kittens or puppys who are too young to have insecticide put on them.
    Kill the fleas that you find on the comb with soap or alcohol

    12 weeks is far past the safe age to treat for fleas with Capstar (4weeks) or Frontline (8weeks).
    You can buy Capstar and Frontline Plus at drsfostersmith.com . The Capstar will kill all the fleas on your cat almost instantly and the frontline will prevent re-infestation. Use the Capstar right away. It will kill all fleas on your cat with in an hour. It is imperative that you do not skip this. Frontline (or advantage, revolution, promeris, etc.) is only effective if the flea bites the cat. Fleas have a 3 week lifespan and only feed for a few days of those three weeks, so you must use Capstar to kill all live fleas on your cat. After you Capstar add on the Frontline Plus and it will keep fleas off your cat for 30 days. Any eggs that hatch will be killed when they feed by the Frontline. Refrontline every 30 days. No vet visit required and totally safe.http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/pr…
    Frontline contains fipronil, which spreads via the body oils killing fleas within 24 hours and ticks within 48 hours. Ticks are generally killed before they bite, decreasing the risk of tick-borne disease transmission. Approved for use on kittens 8 weeks and older.
    Frontline Plus also contains (S)-methoprene, an Insect Growth Regulator, which prevents an insect from maturing or reproducing. Approved for use on kittens 8 weeks and older.
    You can use FRONTLINE flea and tick control once a month and it’s completely waterproof. Provide your cat with the best flea and tick protection, right from the start. http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/pr…

    all the above answers are good! what we did with my friends is stood her in the bathtub, poured water on her back waited a few minutes and the flipped her over. all the fleas run away from the water so you can grab/spray the fleas once shes on her back 🙂
