The Capstar <http://www.capstar.novartis.us/> pill is fabulous because it bombs the fleas off in about 2 hours, then you can start using a monthly flea treatment. I use Revolution and never had any problems with my FeLV+ cats using it.
As far as cleaning products go, I use Dawn on nearly everything - it's a very effective anti-bacterial and it's comepletely safe for animals. When I bring new kittens or puppies/dogs into the house, I give them a Dawn bath because it kills germs and helps wash off fleas. I have hardwood floors, so I'm limited to certain cleaning products. My favorite is Pine Sol. On Mon, Jun 20, 2011 at 12:24 PM, Cindy McHugh <ci...@furangels.org> wrote: > I just realized our FeLV cat has fleas.
