So we got two kittens in May. They're a little over 3 months old now. Neither of them had fleas or bugs of any kind when we got them. About two weeks ago, we noticed they were itching like crazy (I don't pay a ton of attention to the cats; we really only have them for the kids) and upon checking, noticed that the cats are both completely infested with fleas.
Since we've never had any luck with any cats in the past using anything but Advantage, we got some and applied it. Worked fine. All the fleas were gone the next day (well, dead all over the floor). We sprayed for fleas and vacuumed thoroughly, as normal for fleas. And now, less than two weeks later, the cats are both completely infested again. Neither of them go outside. I know the people who lived here before us had lots of dirty pets and had flea and worm problems (and would just lock their pets in closets so they didn't have to deal with it ), but truly...I don't know of anything else we can do. I just gave the cats a bath with yellow Joy dishsoap as someone told me to do for fleas, but it just seemed to ... wet the fleas? They're still biting full force. And I treated them again with Advantage, but I'm sure the fleas will be back in no time.
I need something that will work or else I'm getting rid of these cats and the kids will probably not be thrilled with that. Anyone?
