    I wouldnt bother with pet shop stuff it is so unreliable. Whip her off to the vets and they will give you Frontline/Stronghold etc. Costs a bit more but at least it does the job. Last thing you want is the kits being born next to the biddies. Never had a preggers cat with biddies so best to get advice as well, although I am sure it can be given maybe in a spray form.

    Here you are. From the manufacturers themselves:

    "FRONTLINEĀ® SPOT ON is licenced for use in breeding, pregnant, and lactating bitches and queens"

    frontline

    You can use frontline spot on for mum,available now in petshops,but good idea to get small 100ml spray frontline for babes,can use from 2 days old.fleas can do a lot of damage to small kittens,and transmit worms.Fron tline combo(only available from vets) treats house as well as pet,but is not available in spray form,good luck

    I wouldn't every use frontline on any of my cats... Fleas have build up a resistance against it... I now use advantage , it expensive but works and I think you can use it on said cat... Only problem you will have to do your home too another wise you will be fighting a Losing battle... Buy online lots cheaper

    Change her bedding and wash it hot or bin it. That's as well as, not instead of.

    Someone's dug an old thread up folks. This one dates back to 2008. Hopefully this cat's not got fleas anymore. :D
