It has been quite a while since i have written anything. Mom has been really busy still trying to get thee fleas under control....i even had to have a flea bath! The poor kitten has one weekly since his get so bad and no matter what we do it doesnt get better. He had a flea bath yesterday and still has fleas on him....we even bug bombed out house....and nothing works! Another thing is lately it has been very hot in our house since our A/C went out....all i can manage to do is lay around in the kitchen....its so hot, but mom says we'll fix the A/C soon!

Hi Gimpy,

I agree, it can be very hard to completely get rid of fleas. They are so resistant. We had fleas in our house a long while ago when my sisfur Pippin joined the family. She was full of fleas and just an itty bitty thing at the time. Momma could not use any chemicals on her because she was too young.

So, the vet suggested that Momma treat all of us older fur-siblings with Advantage and just give Pippin regular baths and flea comb her until she was old enough to have Advantage. And she suggested for momma to regularly bomb the house. That worked. We haven't had any fleas since. That was over six years ago.

I hope your momma finds something that works for your family against those pesky fleas!

Purrs,
Tigger

Oh yea fleas are so tuff mom had a kitty rescuer friend tell her to treat the healthy kitties with advantage or frontline (you can get it at pets stores or 1 800 pets) and the fleas will bite the treated kitties and then the fleas die so they go away if yo bathe the under aged kitties. Good luck sweetie you are so adorable.
