Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Flea killers for carpet and beds that are safe for cats?
So... We have fleas.
We had a visitor who owned a cat who had fleas and brought it to our house. Boo. Meowmy has taken these steps:
-Giving us a flea bath
-Administering Advantage on us
-Doing all the laundry
-Cutting up a flea collar and putting it in the vacuum bag
-Vacuumed EVERY square inch of the carpet
-Threw away the bag outside
She's completely disgusted by germs and seeing that flea on her sent her over the edge yesterday! Now she wants to spray something on the carpet, couch, etc to make sure that EVERYONE of those fleas are OUT of our house. Can anyone give her a brand that works, is safe for cats, and something she can pick up today (instead of ordering it online)?
Also, after meowmy put Advantage on us behind the neck, some of it dripped to the side where I could reach with my tongue, she didn't think I could. She's not sure how much I licked off but will the Advantage still be effective on me?
