Basics Of Flea Baths – An Important Part Of Your Cat’s Grooming Regime

There’s very little worse for a family then living in a home with a kitty that is afflicted by a flea infestation. It’s bad enough that your cat is always scratching and clawing at itself, even ripping large hunks of hair and flesh from its body in an attempt to rid itself of the biting insects. But sadly there is little to stop the fleas from staying on the pussy. If the issue is not treated, you might quickly notice that your whole house is completely full of fleas, and you are being bitten almost as regularly as your pet house cat.

It’s critical to stop the fleas before they begin to take over your home.

Preventive medicine is the best way to make sure that your pet and house stay flea free. There are several topical medications available on today’s market that are designed to prevent fleas from feasting on your cat. Almost all of the products are quite successful provided the kitty owner follow the directions and use them correctly.

Flea collars are a traditional favorite of pet owners in the war against fleas. Strapping a flea collar around you cat’s neck will help prevent fleas from sipping your pet’s blood provided your cat is not adept at slipping the collar from around its neck. If flea collars are your preferred technique of flea control ensure that the collar isn’t so tight that your cat has breathing problems and eating although not so loose that your pussy is vulnerable to becoming caught on objects although it plays.

If your cat already has fleas, the fastest way to get rid of them is to give it a flea bath. Try and find a flea shampoo that’s mild enough that it will not hurt your pussy or kitten. If you’re incapable of finding a mild flea shampoo you’re assured wont cause irritation to your cat’s skin or strip its hair of its natural oils, try employing a shampoo that’s designed for children. Kitchen sinks are an excellent place to give your pussy a flea bath, because you can stand straight up while you are holding your pussy-cat in the water. Kitchen sinks are typically deeper then sinks located in other parts of the house.

When you are giving your pet cat a flea bath have masses of towel to hand both to dry your freshly washed pet, and to sop any extra water that gets inadvertently splashed on the counters and kitchen floor. If your cat is prone to bite and scratch when it’s placed in a sink full of water, you may want to invest in a pair of thick, tall falcon gloves that will protect your hands and arms. If you do get bitten by your cat while giving it a flea bath you will want to get to your doctors office right away, even cats that are kept inside, have dirty mouths and cat bites can get infected very quickly.

After your cat is clean and free of fleas, send some time cuddling it and brushing its freshly washed hair. Let it know that you actually failed to mean to torture it and you still like it. Eventually your feline friend will forgive you.

Bathing your cat will be easier if it is something that you do to it on a regular basis. If you start washing your kitten when you first get it, the pussy will learn that baths are merely a routine part of life and are nada to stress over.
