Snowfalke our cat

by Sarah

I have a young white cat who has had fleas in the past. I treated her with a regular cat medication which killed the fleas, but unfortunately almost killed her too! She suffered from severe seizures and required a night at our vets office. This mistake cost three hundred dollars and almost Snowflake's life. She has fleas again now, and I'm not sure what to do. I've heard that white cats are more prone to seizures, but is there any medication that's sure to be safe for her?

I could also use some advice on moving with Snowflake. I'm about to leave for college in the spring, and I'd like to take her with me since I've had her since the fourth grade. She's verrrrry sensitive to strange surroundings, though. I know she'll be freaked out for a while no matter what, but does anyone have any advice on how to make the transition easier on her? I just want her to adjust well, and not be so terrified. Thanks to anyone who can help!

Hi please see my page about moving with a cat

As for the fleas I recommend you go down to your vets office and speak to the receptionist about the spot on flea treatments they have available, tell them about her previous problem. the spot on treatments available from the shops are 9 times out of 10 rubbish and dont really do the job at all. the vets spot on treatment is easy to give, protects the cat from fleas and should not harm your cat at all.

i would avoid any spays or powders for your cat. You may need to treat your home though so that the problem does not keep recurring. please see this page for more on this

best wishes KAte
