Day Three – Still got them……okay, Steam cleaning time. Drag out the carpet shampooer/steamer. Move furniture do entire carpeted area, stressing my kitties even more. Time for more research…….What else can I do??? Well, bathing the two younger cats in Dish detergent , this required two people. My cats have never been bathed, so we were scratched by squirming kitties while soaping them down and letting the soap sit and suffocate the fleas. We got about 20 fleas between the two kitties. At least the kitties didn’t hold a grudge, came to us for loving within an hour.
