Does anyone know of home remedies to get rid of fleas in my house and 3 adult cats. I have already used a flea spray on cats one I a long hair and I don't think it real worked that good on her and my older cat had a reaction by foaming at the mouth so needless to say I'm not going to use that again. I don't really want to use chemical stuff. I may get some frontline to use on them if I have to. I know some people said there is a pill I can give them to kill the fleas at first. Just wondering what you ladies have used or have heard that works to get rid of fleas on cats.

Better look on the internet, but cider vingar spayed on the cats will help them. You mix it half and half with water. I have had flies and sprayed the house closed it up and went for a long drive, but I have dogs not cats.

We always bathed out cats/dogs in regular listerine mouth wash. Its an antiseptic so it cleans all the sores for the scratching and the fleas hate hate hate it. Then flea powder stuff on the carpet and furniture for a few hours and vacuum up.

If you live somewhere that eucalyptis(sp?) grows you can cut branches and lay them on the carpet for a day or so. It will get as you walk on them it will release their oil and get rid of the fleas. Just be sure no one is allergic to eucalyptis first. It is kind of messy with the branches and leave in the house but this is cheap, easy, and works great!

Thats what I was going to suggest, or borax also works in the yard or on the carpets. Eucalyptus oil would also work if she doesnt have the plant around. Or penny royal. My ex Mom in law used that on her cats. all natural. except the borax of course... Tongue
