I HATE FLEAS. HATE THEM. My 19-year old cat, Rags, who died in March 2009 of CRF was never given flea control. He never got fleas but yet went outside daily. My two juvenile delinquents now have gone outside every day and have had fleas twice!
I’ve always wondered why that was so – certainly Charlie and Trigg have better immune systems than my dying 19-year old Rags, right? Well, after reading Natural Flea Control for Cats by Liz Eastwood, the only difference I can think of is that Rags received B12 injections with his sub Q fluids every night.
That’s right, Liz says that the secret to flea control lies in vitamin B. Who knew? It’s a little more complicated than that and for a $1.99, it’s completely worth learning the simple steps. For example, you cannot just go to a drug store, grab some vitamin B and give it to your cat.
Liz talks about Flea Treats as a very quick and simple solution. These treats keep fleas (and ticks!) off your pets. They’re free of hormones and insecticides. They’re guaranteed. They’re safe, healthy treats, too! WHOA! Where in the world have these been hiding?! You can order them through the Flea Treats website or by phoning them in California 760.433.3888 or toll free: 1.888.FLEA TREat (888.353.2873).
I learned about Liz’s book after reading the book review Ingrid King over at the Conscious Cat did.
I loved Liz’s book and had so many “AH-Ha” moments while reading it!
I am sooo excited! Liz has given me hope that we can prevent fleas and I won’t kill my cats in the process with the toxic chemicals that other flea preventatives ask you to put on your cats.
Here’s what else is inside:
- Learn about a natural method that actually works
- Get rid of and prevent fleas with clear, simple steps
- Avoid natural flea products that are actually toxic to cats and hazardous to eyes and lungs
- Save money you would have spent on chemical products
- Flea control checklist
- Problem solving
- Natural flea control methods to avoid
- Resource list
Do you remember Mitt? He’s a Ragdoll cat owned by Ashley, a Floppycats.com reader. Mitt has crazy allergies – crazy allergies. Someone even told Ashley that he was allergic to fleas and yet he had none. I cannot help but think that the method that Liz suggests in her book would help Mitt and other kitties with weirdo allergies that dermatologists blame on insects!
Natural Flea Control for Cats is an ebook that sells for $1.99 on Amazon.com – if you’re an Amazon.com Prime Member, then you can download it for free.
Here’s a YouTube video of Charlie and Trigg devouring their Flea Treats – we have been on the Flea Treats for 1 month and so far no fleas – knock on wood.
IMPORTANT! If your kitties *already have fleas* be sure to follow the “Remove” technique (ie, flea comb, flea trap) at the same time as the Repel technique (eg, Flea Treats)…until the fleas are gone. Then you can default to the old Flea Treats as the preventative.
