My baby, Pandora, is an indoor cat, but somehow she managed to get fleas while I was living with a friend of mine. (I think they came with a couch he bought from a neighbor, but I can't be sure.) I started using Frontline Plus and they would go away for about two weeks, but then come back. We cleaned all the rugs and furniture with really expensive flea powder and kept giving her the Frontline Plus. Shortly after that, I moved into my own apartment. Since Pandora and I moved when she was on her first two weeks of Frontline, she appeared not to have any fleas. My new appartment obviously didn't have any...nor did my furnature, which had been in storage while I was staying with my friend. Everything was fine for about a month and a half, and now she has fleas again! And this time the Frontline Plus is not working AT ALL. It's so gross because they cluster in her whiskers and all over her face. I don't even want her sitting near me, let alone on me, but I don't know what to do. Everyone says Frontline Plus is the best, so what do I do if the best doesn't work? Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't understand how she keeps getting reinfested (I don't ever see fleas anywhere in the house except on her), and I don't understand why the medication has no effect. I've already been told that flea colars are useless, but I thought maybe there was some kind of special food or supplent cats could take internally to prevent fleas. If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. I miss cuddling with my baby, but seeing those nasty things running all over her poor face just grosses me out! Please help! Thanks! -Bryn
