In researching holistic care for cats, there are a few remedies that come up over and over again. One of these is apple cider vinegar – something I use to treat bladder infection in my own body. From what I’ve seen, apple cider vinegar is effective in treating a number of ailments in cats; bladder blockages and infections, ear infections, mange, fleas, mites, ringworm, upper respiratory problems, and more. Always dilute apple cider vinegar when using it with cats!
Treating fleas on Cats and getting rid of fleas in the home
I have three cats. one of them is a Maine Coone X
This is my method to deal with fleas.
I run a few inches of luke warm water into the bath.
Then add 2 table spoons of Epsom salt and mix with the water till it is dissolved.
Then add 3 tablespoons Elizabeth Anne Baby Shampoo. The aqueous shampoo which is SOAP FREE.
Mix this well too.
See that you have a few clean bath towels ready and that the windows are closed.
Remove the collar from the cat. Start singing a little song to your cat.
Pick the cat up gently and walk backwards into the bathroom.
Lower the cat into the bath and hold on gently yet firmly. (keep singing till the bath is over)
The idea is to rinse the cat off with this mixture.
Also apply of the Elizabeth Ann shampoo to the body of the cat and keep rinsing the cat off with this mixture. Then simply pull the plug and drain the bath.
The last time I bathed my cats I added a few drops of sweet almond oil which I have read is not toxic to cats.
The fleas are smothered and I believe the Epsom salt added also kills them.
(Next time I am going to add a few lavender flowers to the water.)
The Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate) is calming too. Your feline has just had a little spa treatment.
