Hi guys I've posted on here a few months ago having adopted a rescue cat after my lovely cat passed away. I am struggling again to bond with Amy who been with me now since February I am under a lot of stress as a family member has cancer and Amy still had the dreaded fleas having spent hundreds of pounds for sprays bombs and deflea products for her and I'm at the end of my tether I'm not sleeping and getting bitten constantly my home doesn't feel like a home anymore. Is it unfair to try and rehome her? She was in the rescue centre for over 9 months and unsure of the history before that she still won't let me pick her up or go near her and she's due another vets appt soon can't cope with being scratched to the point where there is blood everywhere again. Just think she might be better off with someone who has come across a difficult cat I know it's only fleas bit my two that passed away was indoor cats never had fleas and I just cannot cope with the stress or keep paying so much when nothing is working. I'm in West Yorkshire

Hi, I’ve just re-read your other threads and I gave some advice on rehoming there in case you decided to go ahead, it may be a good idea to follow that if nothing is working for you. It’s a shame but if you keep feeling this way it may be time to sort it. It’s strange about the fleas though, they should be gone if you’ve followed all the instructions from your vet.

I have done everything the vet suggested they did say as her bed that she came with was infested it may take 3-6 months they was in the same situation when they adopted. Thanks for your reply ill have a look at the previous post

Thank you I am so happy now think I got Amy too soon after Suzie died but realise now Suzie would have wanted me to give another cat a home the fleas still haven't gone but the situation is getting better I know things will take time but heading in the right direction. Thank again for listening and all your advice x

The rescue I foster for has started to use Broadline, which also treats for worms, so I have started to do the same. I don't love the stuff as there seems to be more of it than there is in most spot-ons and I find it a bit messy, but it does seem to work well and also does save a bit of money as you don't have to treat for worms separately. That's particularly important for me as most of my gang hunt and eat their prey.

Thank you ill give that a try bless her just want her to be happy. Amy has really thick hair I thought I was doing it right even though I can only see a very small amount of skin when putting on the drops the vet said it can sometimes take months but didn't realise it would still be a problem x

I use Broadline as well. Find it easier to administer than Frontline. Not having to pill Tilly for worms (she is also an avid hunter) is a huge plus!

Your cat looks adorable:)

If you still can not destroy fleas, the source can be different than you think. Maybe your cat has nothing to do with these insects and Amy is a victim, not the sourse. Try to call special service which kills parasites. Hope you solve the problem soon. Wish you luck!

Thank you for all your responses I'll give that a try first I have used loads of household sprays and bombs I thought she was all clear and she's scratching more again but won't let me comb her to see if there is anything on her part from seeing dirt. The nurse at the vets said she had the same situation with taking home a basket from the rescue centre to try and make her settle and with that being so riddled it takes longer. I was getting so stressed out again just need to think it will get resolved eventually just takes time. Thanks again
