My 8 month kitty Melvin escaped last week and came home bearing the gift of fleas. I have another cat I’m afraid he is going to expose and since I once lived in a flea invested apartment before, I don’t want to relieve that horrible, itchy battle!!
So I went to Target an hour ago and but Sergeants Gold squeeze on formula. It was pretty cheap so I was weary of how effective it would be, but since I cant afford frontline I thought I’d give it a try. I also bought Hartz flea and tick home spray (haven’t used it yet.) I want to get rid of those buggars if they are in my carpet!
I applied it to my other cat first Zeus, since Melvin is a skiddish rescue cat who rarely lets me touch him. A few minutes later I notice that he was desperately trying to lick is back. I was afraid that I may have misplaced a drop, so I got worried and typed in the product name on google. I somehow font a link to this website. Although this isn’t a Hartz product I got frightened and washed Zeus in with dishwater soap (I don’t have Dawn.)
I’d say the product had been on him for about 5minutes. Should I be worried? What signs should I look out for? I haven’t applied it to my flea infested cat. Would it be a bad idea to use the Hartz home spray?
I don’t want to hurt my cats, by I don’t want these fleas to start eating us all alive eitiher!! Any ideas??
