I think last time I posted, I had just gotten a little kitten. George is now over a year old and thriving as an indoor/outdoor cat. We also adopted another cat who befriended George, and their owner asked us to take him in when they moved away. Awak and George are truly besties. It's great having them both. Awak is 3 and has just been chipped and had first set of vaccinations - nightmare visit to vet, and of course another top up due in a month.
My burning Q of the day is - What are these sticktight fleas called in French? And how do I best treat them? Our adopted cat came on a walk with me yesterday and decided to visit the neighbours fowl enclosure (ducks, geese, hens etc etc) Last night I noticed all these black dots on his ears and saw a couple crawling on his face.
I have discovered they are probably chicken fleas, and have managed to kill a few but he doesn't like to be handled so it's difficult.
He is treated for the cat fleas, ticks, worms etc, so my question is - how do I treat these invaders? Is it a vet visit (not a good choice for poor kittie) or can I buy something from them to treat these fleas, or will his normal treatment (spot on) work?
Thanks so much. Hope you all had a great hot summer and not too many ticks and fleas!
