Re: Dangerous Flea Treatments and Shampoos/ Permethrin
Hi there, you guys, quick question:
i know i may be being over zealous with the health of my (not really "mine") cats health but i love her and i just don't want to put her in harms way.
Anyways, like 3 days ago, Friday night, my family treated themselves for scabies (a bloody nightmare, i'll tell you), 5% permethrin cream, all over (not fun!). The 3 of us did it before bed and washed it off early Saturday morning and all is well, still itching but never mind.
Right, to cut a long story short, a cat that used to live next door and visit me all the time (ALL the time), has arrived on my window ledge (i think she has walked like 2 miles!?), i'm so glad to see her, it is too late to call her owners right now, but is it ok to let her in to sleep in my bed? I hear that permethrin cream is pretty toxic, will there be traces all over the place like on carpets (i had to put it on my bare feet a walked around all night) and other stuff? I have heard that its safe when its dry, it has been 2 days but i dunno... shed some light on the subject, can you?
P.s i hope this is the right place to post this if its not i apologise.
