what a mistake

We ignorantly applied the flea drops to our 2 year old tabby and went through an incredibly scary weekend with her. About 10 hours after application (at 3 AM), she was crawling around the bed with her claws extended, acting like she couldn’t relax. At that point, I was very scared and decided to wash it off with a wet rag. I felt crazy because I couldn’t explain what was wrong, but something very clearly was. The next morning, when she was still acting very restless and shaky, so we bathed her with gentle hand soap. She was still acting weird last night- acting as if her skin was very sensitive, shaking, no interest in playing, hunched over. This morning she seems to be back to her old self. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.
By the way, she still has fleas.
