  • Use a flea product such as Revolution, Advantage or Frontline on mom only.
  • Do not use flea products on newborn kittens; it’s not safe as they are too young.
  • If you see fleas on the kittens, you can bathe them using Dawn dishwashing liquid and use a small flea comb as needed to get the fleas off.
  • Avoid antibacterial soaps.
  • If you have to bathe kittens, make sure you dry them well and keep them warm as they can get chilled easily.
  • Only a fraction of the fleas are on the cats, so it is just as important to remove fleas from the bedding, carpet and surrounding areas.
  • You can treat your yard using Dawn dishwashing liquid, too!
