Q. My kitten is very dirty on the belly side and on top of head. What should I use for a home remedy for shampoo?
JESSICA L DESROSIERS
A. If you do not have access to a pet-safe shampoo for cats, Dawn soap can be used as a safe alternative for kittens. Gently massaging the soap into dirty areas and then carefully rinsing and drying your kitten should remove any dirt and debris from the skin and hair. Dawn soap also has an added effect of suffocating fleas, so if your kitten is too young for a flea medication, this can help too!
