how to solve flea problem?
Hi. I desperately need advice on this from others with indoor/outdoor cats. My cat is treated for fleas (Advantage) but she's still bringing them in as passengers or something in the last few weeks (I found a dead flea in her water bowl). My bf and I are getting bitten and getting bad allergic reactions, and it can't go on like this all summer. Genie goes out of our small flat and roams a small network of gardens, so I can't do anything about treating the source. We had her indoors for a year before moving here and she was bored and frustrated much of the time. The last three months have been a dream - she's been coming and going at will and been extremely happy and healthy. My bf reckons the only solution is to make her stay in all the time but this is going to be **** for all of us! Does anyone have any alternative suggestions or experiences? Thanks for any advice.
