I give mine a capstar, which will kill adult fleas, but that's it. I won't use those topical treatments, can't get near this kitty anyhow, but I had used it ONCE on a rescue that I took in, and within minutes she was foaming at the mouth and having a bad reaction. It was horrible. I vowed to never put that on another cat, it was the first time and the last. But anyhow, the capstar will kill the adults, most within a half hour. I then treat the bedding area, and I repeat the capstar every for days or so, for three times, which seems to work really well. I got the spray for the bedding from the vet, it has no odor, is safe for the kitty, and works wonderfully. I do change out his bedding, but I do have a heated pad in there for him, and insulation on the insides of his house where fleas could be hiding, so that's why I do the spray. I do it in the morning after he has gone for a walk, and then air it out good and it's all set when he gets back. I never see him scratching anymore. I first started the capstar when I noticed he was yanking out fur on his belly and scratching quite a bit. He won't let me touch him, so I can only get within a foot or so and he lets me look, but don't touch...he's so cute. But thankfully his belly is white, I could see flea dirt and knew that's what it was, so tried the capstar and it worked like a charm. I do this every couple of months to keep things in check. Hope that helps!
