Haha, that was actually a rhetorical question because I posted an article right after that :P
Many vets here advise against dosing with Revolution (or other flea treatments) monthly and treat it as they come. It's what I do with my dog and so far, we haven't had an issue yet. She's 6 years old and isn't and hasn't been on any routine dosing of "pesticides". For those living in areas with heartworms, Interceptor is a better choice. Of course, this is just my opinion based on talking to vets and other owners. If you read the boxes, they'll tell you not to get it on your own skin.
Personally, if it's not safe for ME to have on my skin, why would I dose it monthly on my pets? They scratch themselves, lick their paws afterwards, groom themselves, etc. Basically, they ingest this stuff that we're not even supposed to touch with our own skin. Some people aren't aware of what's really in those products.
I can't speak for any outdoor cats, though.
(I don't mean to scare anyone, but I know of a lady who had two pets die from using Revolution.)
