We use Advantage here. Even have one of the cats trained to come up to me - and without holding her - let me put it on her. I think it might have to do with the piece of salmon that has her name on it for a treat afterwards!

I use Advantage on both my dogs, it works great, I tried the bath approach one with the same results as Blast, not going there again....LOL The ductape approach sounded interesting.

Just be careful and observant if you start using Advantage or Frontline or whatever on your cat. The stuff is basically poison, and cats seem more sensitive to that stuff than dogs. I have a couple relatives with cats that cannot tolerate those treatments without getting very sick (one teetered on the brink of death… and correct dosages were administered).

Best way I know to test the waters is by using smaller doses for the first month(s), like quarter- or half-doses, at first to make sure the animal won’t have a reaction. Most people that have tried this report that even a half-dose keeps the fleas off for a full month. Only move up to a full dose if the animal shows no adverse reaction.

"DO NOT get the cheapo stuff from walmart or the feed store, that stuff is toxic to cats."

PLEASE pay attention to this advice! It's nasty stuff, and shouldn't even be allowed on the market.

What caliber does this "Advantage" come in?

12ga?
20ga?
.410?


The trick with cat's is communication.

Cat's think that Humans are stupid. Thickest monkeys ever to fall out of a tree. Only a dumb monkey/human thinks that furry = harmless & cute. Cat's await the day when some Monkey Human Mug invents the paw operated can opener and T.V. remote control.

Then it's extermination time, Monkey Boys.........


You have to "communicate" certain facts of life to them. Like exterminate us and our allies The Canines will avenge us.

Love it.

Alternativly:

1) Garb yourself with chain-mail including gloves.
2) Pick cat up by the short & curlys.
3) Produce pill.
4) Explain to cat in reasonable tones that:
a) It can take this pill. Then it's tuna treat with canary with whipped cream to follow time.
or:
b) It can refuse...........

I am no advocate for illicit drug use, but I did see a friend with a more relaxed attitude about such things get his cat so high that he could've skinned it and it would've done little more than lay there and whimper.

I guess Canabis really does a number on cats. Isn't it related to catnip anyways?

Blast, next time I would suggest preheating the bath water.

In the microwave.

With the cat in the water.

For about 15 minutes on high.

Yes, I did, actually. Unfortunately, they tend to prefer to climb up the person bathing them...and then down the other side.
