It’s Finally Happened!

My hairless cats have gotten fleas 😦 I am blaming the rabbit (now-deceased 😦 ). I put a treatment on them, and by the next morning they had nary a flea on them. I washed all the blankets, pillows, anything I could shove in a washer. Sprayed every inch of carpeting with a high quality, non-toxic spray that did the trick.

And then two days later…..here comes two tiny little fleas on each cat. I kid you not; 2 on each cat. I pull them off and kill them (the fleas, not the cats!) and later, two more fleas. This issue of twin-fleas-on-each-of-my-cats has been going on for days. It’s like the fleas know I am allergic to them, and are torturing me by not letting me be able to let my cats in my bedroom to snuggle with me and keep me warm under the sheets.

I don’t know what to do next, but these fleas will be extracted from my house, and my cats, before the upcoming weekend is over.

I have been a big ball of angry-depressed-no-motivation and have been literally going to bed as soon as I get home from work, and staying there until I have to get up the next day and go back to work. I need my kitties with me!

Gotta love the stupid time change that makes is dark before 5:30 pm each night. I go through this bullshit every single year.

Any great ideas for flea removal above and beyond the chemical treatment method?

  1. I have the very same problem every summer. I’m also allergic to fleas. I have heard that using flea drops on cats every month all year long helps. The problem I have is that fleas love me and all I have to do is go out in the yard and I bring fleas inside with me. A vicious cycle! Some people wash their cats in diluted apple cider vinegar. I also use a flea comb. It’s great in extracting fleas from pets. Daily vacuuming helps. But dump the vacuum bag outside.

    1. I am not sure if apple cider vinegar would bother my cats skin. Since they have no hair, they have really sensitive skin. I did manage to get rid of the fleas with medication, and hopefully they never come back! Thanks for sharing!
