<P>Instead of a flea collar, check with your vet about some of the various medications that they have - collars on outdoor cats can be a problem. Our new not-quite full-grown kittens have not been out so it isn't an issue for them, but out prior cat was prescribed a medication that we put on the back of his neck once a month or every other month. It was great and worked very well - absorbed through the skin and killed the fleas if they tried to bite. (He was allergic to flea bites so the new medications were much better than flea baths!!)<BR><BR>Beth</P></DIV>

<DIV></DIV>Before Joel and I moved to the Baltimore-Washington area, we lived in
<DIV></DIV>Phoenix for 3 years. There we didn't have to worry about fleas (or
<DIV></DIV>mosquitoes or roaches or mice.just scorpions!). Now that I've started
<DIV></DIV>to let my cat outside here in Baltimore, I'm wondering if I need to get
<DIV></DIV>her a flea collar. Do you cat-owners advise buying flea collars?
