It is common for adult cats to pass fleas on to their babies. However, veterinarians advise that kittens under the age of eight weeks not be treated with flea medication. The fleas can cause anemia in kittens, and they will cause the small kittens to scratch constantly, which can be very annoying and uncomfortable. You can use some safe home methods to get rid of the fleas so that the kittens can relax.
Fill your bathtub with about an inch of warm water. Make sure the water is lukewarm, not too hot.
Add a few drops of dish detergent and lather up your kitten. Let the kitten stay soapy for a total of five minutes. This should be sufficient time to kill all of the fleas.
Rinse your kitten off and then dry her with a towel.
Run a flea comb through your kitten's fur to collect any dead fleas.
