Hello I just registered and I am looking for some advice. I have a cat that visits, ever since my old cat passed away, it has been visiting for over four years, the owners moved and now it rarely visits but always comes back at random times, I pet it, it rolls about on the kitchen carpet and I give it a meal, then off it goes, anyways I am concerned it may have brought some fleas with it. I recently got a new 1.5 year old female cat ( neutered ) the owners did not want her, third child on the way and running a restaurant with no time to look after a cat, they claim it’s always been an indoor cat, they also claim she had all her shots and flea treatment but she was scratching a little when they brought her over, so maybe I am blaming the cat that visits but really it’s on my new cat and the owners were not so truthful, I do not know, if it’s the latter then I can only hope the cat that visits is safe and gets treated by it’s owners, I don’t know where they live now, it used to be two doors away. To the point, I bought some 40ml Advantage flea pipettes as the cat weights 3.6kg, she will only eat dry food, will not touch wet food at all even though I keep trying to encourage it, seems healthy, poops once a day like clockwork, I also bought Indorex, two cans, my plan is to do each room separately and allow it to dry thoroughly before letting the cat into that room again, I need to wash bedding too as the cat has an adult double bed all to itself. I am a little confused after thoroughly reading instructions for this and other sprays like this, it says it bonds to the surface and can last for twelve months, that’s the part that concerns me, the cat will not only lie down on the surface, be it a carpet or lino but the cat has been known to sometimes touch the carpet with her tongue or go after spiders, I suspect if they are dead she would eat them, oh and I don’t want to kill the spiders but I know this spray will do that but the fleas need to be controlled, anyways the question is, will she get poisoned by touching a treated surface with her tongue or if she lies down on the surface, this really concerns me, not just short term but long term issues that may arise, what is the opinion of users at this forum? My plan would be to do the kitchen first, then her bedroom on the second day and downstairs living room and stairs on the third day, this includes a wooden table ( I think that should be done as she sits on it ) I have a leather couch, she sits on this too although I use a cover on it, she has climbed all over the radiators too but I suspect the heat would kill them, I cannot see fleas living on or inside radiators, more likely the floor under them, I am just concerned, once dry it is attached to surfaces but what if she licks those surfaces or Dreamies treats are placed on the surfaces?
