Okay Lisa, here's the deal: your girl might have ticks too, and some brands are better than others. You cannot keep pesticiding your cat without making her seriously ill. You need to wait one month from the last treatment and then get her flea dipped at the vet and bomb again if you have carpet, washing all bedding/linens and treating the yard with flea spray if she goes out. She is obviously picking them up from somewhere, or they never died in the first place. The better treatments are pricier... worth every penny too. Buy a flea comb to determine the level of infestation on your cat. Do not keep bathing her or her natural skin oilds will be stripped, leaving her even more irritated and open to infection. From there, a 6-month collar like Seresto or Frontline plus (monthly) will do it.
