During our Sunday Conference Call yesterday the subject of how to treat cats came up. Robin, my co-host, gave her cat Program, the pet version of lufenuron, a Seresto Flea and Tick Collar for Cats that kills mites and a flea dip which you might call a mite dip.
She explained how she did the mite dip on the call so I asked her to write it up for those who were not on the call. She writes, "Here is the protocol for flea dipping a cat. And attached is a picture of tiger."
How to give your cat a flea dip.
• Get two plastic containers with 2 Cups of warm water in each.
• Also, get two clean wash cloths.
• In one container put 1 capful of Adams Pyrethrin Flea Dip for Cats and Dogs
• Holding your cat by the scruff of his neck (like a mother cat holds her kittens)
• Place the cat in an empty bathtub.
• Take one wash cloth and dip it in the mixture with the flea dip.
• Rub the cat all over, continue to hold and leave it on for 5-10 minutes.
• Then take the other washcloth and the clean water and wipe the cat down, essentially rinsing him off.
• Rub him dry with a clean towel or paper towels and let him go!
• You can do this weekly or monthly as needed.

I thank Robin for sharing her experience with Tiger and contributing to our Sunday conference call as my co-host.
