Thumbs down Cat fleas

I’ve seen a few on my kitten so far mange to catch one the little buggers but the question is how many could there be on my new kitten, and kittens aren’t born with these little buggers I hate fleas I really hate them.

Cat flea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So is there a powder a wash that may have to be done to get rid of these little buggers once and for all, because I’m sure the kitten doesn’t like it.

Yes I've heard great things about Frontline. I had a cat Jasmine that was allergic to the flea bites and would need sterode shots to calm the skin down. I also heard that you can put brewers yeast on their food and when the cat ingests the brewers yeast it keeps the fleas away as they don't like the smell.

Che My parents gave me that advice years ago and had been told that by a dog groomer who was also a breeder and said that it worked on dogs and cats. I've not had to use this method as I'm lucky that I don't have any issues.

Try in a health food store. If they don't have in bulk (in a barrel you scoop from) they may have in capsules which you would just open and sprinkle on the cat food.
