Eek! (fleas)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Im not really that new here, a month old but I do have some news to share! After the death of my Baby Boy Glitch, I have gotten a new kitten! His name is Eek! (that was the noise he made when HE picked ME out)

The only reason I got him at all is cause I figured out how to open the cage and get him out faster than the other people!! Haha I BEAT U!!

They say he is 7 weeks old and I know they are full of it. He's cute, cuddly and most importantly, BooBoo loves him!! BooBoo walked right up to him, smelled him and started grooming him IMMEDIATLY!! He was so excited to see him!

He is orange and white (looks an awful lot like Glitch) and has a VERY short tail! He stands 3 inches tall and weighs no more than 1/2 pound! Here are some pics!! Tell me what you Think!!


There was one other cat in the cage with him that wanted nothing to do with me! I kinda hope the other people didn't take him though, as they were obviously not a good choice. If you cant take care of yourself or your kids, I just dont think so!

He also is used to a different food than I am. He is eating Natures Choice.
Is this any good?

I am SO happy for you! And I think that orange kitties are very popular!

Im kinda happy for me too! Its the first time since Glitch died that I didn't know how many days, hours, and minutes ago it was when he died!

The new kitten is just sooo sweet! Best of all, HE LOVES ME!! hehe
BooBoo thinks he's the greatest thing that ever came down the pike!

I always throw my cats in together rather than introducing them slowly and for some reason it always works in my favor! (knockin on wood)

Hes soo short though. So funny. He's got maybe a two inch tail! I wonder what happened to the rest of it or if God made him that way!

Somebody hold me back Im about to hurt my mother in law!!

So I get a new kitty today, bring it out there with me and just a few minutes ago she tells my husband (I had left hours ago) that her cats have fleas!!!
I go into the bathroom to give the poor kitty a bath and I kid you not I pulled a flea the size of him off of him!!! GRRRR!!!! She tells him to go home and have me check Eek because she noticed fleas on her cats 3 days ago!!! I couldnt find any more and believe me I checked but any recomondations on product to use for such a small cat would be greatly appreciated! I dont want him to get fleas they're harmfull to them and Im upset!!!

Congratulations on your new kitten. I have always loved (but never had) orange cats.
No advice about fleas, hopefully you get lucky.

Okay I posted in the kitten care forum and Ive checked him head to toe, no more fleas, no more eggs no nothing so I think Im okay on that. The bath I gave him was a flea bath so If there was anything there isn't now and my other cats been treated recently. The poor little thing! He's so hungry and I cant fix it!!! he's sooo cute though too!

Do not use any over the counter flea products on the kitten...he's way too young! Some OTC flea products are actually harmful to grown cats, but could be deadly to a kitten...no flea shampoos, and definitely no flea collars...those should never be used on any cat!

Your kitten needs to see a vet to find out what the appropriate treatment would be. When I trapped JinJin she was flea infested, and delivered kittens mere days later. I couldn't treat any of them until the kittens were older. I flea combed the kittens every day to keep the fleas at bay until they were old enough.

Oh, I didn't see this before I posted. Your kitten is so very tiny that OTC treatments could potentially be harmful.
