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, 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.

    As I live in the US, I am not familiar with Bob Martin products, but I'm wondering if 1) The product was not kitten-safe and 2) if your kittens ingested enough of this to cause poisoning. Excessive salivation is a sign of poisoning. If this has happened, bathing them will not help as the poison is already in their system. Your only recourse is to get them to a vet emergency clinic as soon as possible. Purrs and good luck.

    Personally I will not use bob martin flea products, I stick to the expense and safety of using frontline from my vet. also at 6 months old you could use a spot on it is much safer, my vet only recommended spray whilst my kittens were up to 12 weeks old. As Izzie said you should deffinately take the kittens to see the vet if you think they have ingested any or are just generally concerned. Good luck
