    How do you get rid of flea from a 7 week old kitten?

    I have just got a kitten that is 7 weeks old but she has flea's and I can see how it bothers her, is there a treatment for a kitten that is so young?

    I expereinced this when my kids had their cat.  We took a bath towel, wraped around your arm; if not they will claw you, then we used warm water in the bath tub and perk shampo.  The flees don't like it and can't wait to jump off the cat and down the drain.  This took about two times, then drying.  After that, we never had a problem ever again.

    There are flea collars for animals of all types and ages. There are flea collars for kittens that emit a very mild chemical that doesn't affect the kitten but definitely kills the fleas. The kitten will fight the collar around the neck for awhile but will eventually adjust to it.

    You know when the groomer takes cats and dogs and flee dips them? Most of them do not use flee dip! They use dawn dish soap. It kills the bacteria that flees feed off of, and it is not hurtful to the animal.
