noticed a few people on here whos cats have had kittens have asked how to get rid of fleas on kittens. im no vet but ive had A LOT of experience with cats and kittens. since kittens are so tiny and young you cant actually use flea medicine on them. so what ive done in the past is put baby oil on the kittens (avoiding their face) and you massage it into their fur. you should leave it on for a few minutes and wash it off thoroughly!! once youve done this dry them the best you can with a towel and pick off or comb the remaining fleas off of them. the fleas will be dead after the baby oil. the baby oil will suffocate the fleas and they will die. i hope this helps a few of you out there!View Thread
