Answered By

A. I would suggest you to get a spot-on flea treatment for your cat. If you get this product from your vets it can be guaranteed that it is safe and effective. There are plenty of good flea products on the market. Most often used are Frontline, Stronghold, Advantage, Advocate and many more.
You should wash bedding in at least 60C.
