|No fleas here either with all my barn cats. But there are no ticks around here so I have no idea about that!
Malachi is a "flea magnet" though and occasionally escapes and gets outside. Within 30 seconds of him being out there he already has fleas on him. He gets combed very well with a flea comb after those episodes. When he was found and taken to the shelter he was covered in fleas, very anemic because of that, and barely alive. So I wonder if that could have anything to do with the problems he still has?
I'm considering using Diatomaceous Earth (food grade, from wolfcreek ranch) for Malachi though, instead of using "normal" flea meds. If I got some, I'd probably use it on all the cats just mixed into their food, to get rid of any worm problems they might have. I'd use it on myself too - it has many benefits for people - and it wouldn't suprise me if I have some type of internal parasistes myself, with my working on a dairy farm!
