So I recently noticed my cat would be furiously biting scratching and grooming himself uncontrollably. When I looked I saw a few fleas but decided to start cleaning like crazy as I know they spread quickly. I got rid of his old bedding and vacuumed profusely. I gave him a bath with tea tree shampoo and noticed some fleas dropping dead. Figured that was it but he was still scratching like crazy so over the next three days I tried the dawn and it seemed as if there were endless fleas dropping off and even when combing, still picking some off as well. When I noticed he still was scratching I used the mixture of dawn and vinegar and it seemed all the small ones left were dropping off him. So over a course of four days my cats has had six baths and only the dawn and white distilled vinegar seemed to finally rid him of all fleas and I’ve had him secluded in my bathroom made of white tile so when they keep dropping dead I just wipe them up and toss them down the toilet. So I believe the safest and less harmful ways of getting them off my cat is with home remedies rather than any flea or tick shampoo and also got him a hartz flea collar which seems to help him from them reaching his ears and him scratching so hard he makes himself bleed.May 8, 2018 at 5:52 AM #81620
