Flea Treatment for Cats

General Cat Care #1: Before You Bring Your Cat Home
You will need food, food dish, water bowl, interactive toys, brush, comb, safety cat collar, scratching post, litter and litter box.
General Cat Care #2: Feeding
An adult cat should be fed one large or two smaller meals each day. Kittens from 6 to 12 weeks need to be fed four times a day. Kittens from three to six months need to be fed three times a day. You can either feed specific meals, throwing away any leftover canned food after 30 minutes or free-feed dry food (keeping food out all the time).

Feed your cat a high-quality, brand-name kitten or cat food (avoid generic brands) two to three times a day. Kittens can be fed human baby food for a short time if they won’t eat kitten food softened by soaking in warm water. Use turkey or chicken baby food made for children six months and older. Gradually mix with cat food. Cow’s milk is not necessary and can cause diarrhea in kittens and cats. Provide fresh, clean water at all times. Wash and refill water bowls daily.

How cats get fleas

Normally we all think that Pets those spend time outdoors will eventually get fleas. But this is not enough there some other reasons also from which your cat gets infected. Know more about them. Those are:

  • Cats can get infested with these worms by eating fleas during grooming
  • Through contact with other animals
  • With fleas in the environment
  • From infected bedding

Direction to use

  • Consult your veterinarian about the flea and tick control to protect your pets from fleas and tick.
  • Use with care when using on feeble, medicated, sick pets, or on pets those shows Sensitivity to pesticide products.
  • Carefully read and follow the product label before any pesticide on your pet.

  • Pay attention to the age restrictions for puppies and kittens on the label.
  • Immediately give a bath to the pet with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water, if the pet experience reaction.

General Cat Care #6: Identification
If allowed outdoors (again, we caution against it!), your cat needs to wear a safety collar and an ID tag. A safety collar with an elastic panel will allow your cat to break loose if the collar gets caught on something. An ID tag or an implanted microchip can help insure that your cat is returned if he or she becomes lost.
General Cat Care #7: Litter Box
All indoor cats need a litter box, which should be placed in a quiet, accessible location. A bathroom or utility room is a good place for your cat’s box. In a multi-level home, one box per floor is recommended. Avoid moving the box unless absolutely necessary. Then do so slowly, a few inches a day. Cats won’t use a messy, SMELLY litter box. Scoop solids out of the box at least once a day. Dump everything, wash with a mild detergent (don’t use ammonia) and refill at least once a week, less frequently if using clumping litter. Don’t use deodorants or scents in the litter or litter box (especially avoid lemon scent).
