At least a year old. If your kitten has fleas, washing it in Dawn dishwashing detergent usually kills them. Be careful not to get it in eyes, nose, mouth, and ears. Bathe the kitten gently and thoroughly once a week until the fleas are gone. You also have to wash all kitten bedding and vacuum your home thoroughly every day until the fleas are gone.

Absolutely no poisons. Flea collars and flea poisons go straight to the liver and kidneys. Dry 20 mule team borax for the house. 2 cups for average room sifted into carpet, the stuffed chairs and cat beds. leave for two weeks before vacuuming. eggs, larvae and adults life cycle complete in 2 weeks. No flea soap. Never any flea collars.

Build immune system with good diet. No corn wheat or soy. No grocery store animal foods. Specialty store, co-op, farm supply has foods like EVO or California naturals. Even Diamond food is so much healthier if finances are an issue. Vaccines ruin the immune system. Please study anti- vaccine sites. vaclib.org is a good one. If your kitty enjoys the yard, please also use no poisons. cedercide granules (online) spread into yard is safe and economical. Food grade diatomacious earth is given often over food for intestinal worms.

Tapeworms often come from pets swallowing fleas. Good idea to rid fleas from everywhere. One makes me bonkers, i can only imagine what a small army of fleas does to a pet. Bathe in dawn dish soap or even bar soap. Kitty much happier with no bugs. Cuddle better now and forevermore.

Please, please do NOT use a flea collar! Kittens have to be at least 2-3 months old before you can use Advantage. I feel it is the safest, but read the labels online before making a choice.
