I'm nervous to try giving them a bath- they are about a million times friendlier than when I first found them but they still don't like to be held for very long. I'm afraid their going to go crazy once I get them wet & they have sharp little nails & teeth!
Giving them a bath isn't going to do much for your flea problem anyway. The ones that are on your cat will probably drown or more likely just jump off the cat until the cat is clean and dry,
but then the ones in the carpets, etc. will hop on for dinner after the kitty's bath anyway. Also, Dawn is NOT a flea shampoo. If you have a container of water with Dawn soap, you would use a flea comb to comb the cat, then dunk the comb in the Dawn mixture which will drown the flea(s) and prevent it from jumping back out. Then you would use a towel to wipe the comb dry and go though the kitty's fur again, and so on.
