Zodiac Spot On flea treatment...evil?

I have to bring Miss Lucky to a cat hotel next week while the boy and I are getting married The lady recommended some kind of flea prevention liquid, I bought some stuff called Zodiac Spot On, and now I am reading all kinds of dire warnings against using any kind of anti-flea medication. Specifically that Hartz brand is toxic to kitties. I am quite dubious about this Zodiac stuff as well, but I also don't want Lucky to get fleas. Any ideas/tips?

Thanks!

Petguard makes a wonderful herbal flea collar. I was very pleased

I wouldn't use any Zodiac or Hartz product on my cats. Not only can they be dangerous (even deadly) to cats but they're not always effective. Personally, I swear by Advantage. It costs a little more but I think it's well worth it!

Yeah, I agree with nanook!
With something like flea treatments, the wrong chemical can be very toxic to a cat. For something like that I'd go through a vet to make sure you get something kitty friendly! Even with stuff I put on my dogs, I usually go through the vet to make sure the cats won't be effected if they come into contact with it.

Thank you for your help. After reading more on this topic, I'm going to ask my vet for her advice on a flea control product when I take Lucky in on Thursday.
