You should treat the rug, etc. Kitty could leave "Friends"

My former tenants left me a flea infested house.
FOUR hours of professional carpet cleaning didn't clear them.
TWO bombings didn't either.
Last weekend I used flea killing powder on the 2 carpeted rooms in the
house... pray it worked.

And this house is unoccupied! Super fleas! Run runnnnnn!

You need to be very careful about using toxic products on a kitten. It's been so long, I don't remember the details, but a former co-worker of mine used a flea-killer product on a kitten, and it died. Make sure whatever you're using is intended to be used on a kitten.

Be sure to throw away the bags each and everytime you vacuum or the fleas will think that they are on vacation in some foreign dusty region.....they aren't jumpers for anything! Good luck.......with 4 cats we have been thru this same problem so many times until Advantage came along.......you might suggest that she take Meow to the vet for it. Fleas are not safe to have around..........
