I'm new here and wanted to say HOWDY to you all. :lol:

I have a comment about something that I read on here about garlic oil capsules being added to cat food. It triggered something in my mind that I had read a while back about the toxicity of garlic and onions. When I "googled" 'garlic and cats' I found this

I was looking up remedies for fleas that have hopped aboard my 2 cats and one cat that I am currently "baby sitting" and I was looking at possible "natural" or "organic" methods of getting rid of the wee buggers when I read about garlic capsules.

Does anyone have a natural, non-toxic remedy for eliminating fleas from my cats? I know some essential oils can also be toxic as well so I would appreciate the feedback! The cat that I am baby sitting is elderly and weighs only about 5 pounds to begin with, so I don't want to "overwhelm" his little system with too much of anything! :shock:

It's been a banner year for fleas here in Pennsylvania and a frustrating year for cat and dog owners who may have a few unwelcome hitchhikers tagging along.

LOVE Howard's show and listen as often as I can. I'm so glad this forum is here!! Thanks very much for letting a "newbie" chime in.

I used the Sentry Natural Defense on my cat and it worked great. Really cheap at walmart. Some people are saying this could be bad stuff, but you can find that everything in the world is bad if you look hard enough. Welcome aboard.
