Unhappy fleas

My cat is pregnant and has really bad fleas
Is there something natural I can give her?

A pregnant cat infested with fleas needs treatment. Please take her to the vet.

How far along is she? If it's very early in the pregnancy, you can still get her spayed.

Did you know?

One unspayed female cat, her mate and all their offspings, producing 2 litters per year, with an average of 2.8 surviving kittens per litter can total:
12 cats after 1 year

67 cats after 2 years

376 cats after 3 years

2,107 cats after 4 years

11,801 cats after 5 years

66,088 cats after 6 years

370,092 cats after 7 years

2,072,514 cats after 8 years

11,606,077 cats after 9 years

PLEASE, SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PETS

Thumbs down Great Advise Thanks alot

Thanks for your help, but I don't believe in spaying a cat while she is pregnant!

Bathe her regularly, just plain gentle cat shampoo (not flea shampoo because she is pregnant and it could harm her babies)

There are flea combs you can buy that work well, brush her thoroughly a few times a day.

Make sure you vacuum carpets daily to control the spread of the population.

You may want to try and keep her issolated from the flea infected places (i.e carpeted areas) when the time comes that she has her kittens. Trying to and minimize the spread to her newborns is essential.

Good luck, I know they can be so frustrating to try and remove permanately. The best natural thing you can do is constant cleaning, it's more work but safer in the end!
