I am using the flea comb on her BUT this house has soo many that the only thing we can do is spray... Is there anything we can do to prevent spraying the house from hurting the kittens and sharkbait?? I have a screened in porch could I put her out there while they spray and the house airs out??? How long if so should I keep her out there? thank you so much!!! ~ EliseMichelle
Elise...welcome to TCS....if your girl is so far along...I would check with your vet regarding the best products to use for flea proofing the house. Your mom's dog really needs a flea treatment so that it does not bring more fleas inside.
Sharkbait really needs to be set up with a room of her own (preferably a spare bedroom or bathroom) that does not have a lot of traffic. Once she has her kittens, she should not be allowed outside...even accidentally as she could become pregnant again within a few days. I realize that having a dog around adds complexities to the situation which is why I recommend you keep Sharkbait in a room that has 2 doors between her and the outdoors.
One final question...Is Charlotte spayed?? If not, now is the time to have her spayed so that she doesn't have kittens of her own. If you need a low cost spay clinic, I have included the list for florida below:http://www.lovethatcat.com/stfl.html
