Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and i would be happy to help you. This is a very serious toxicity concern for cats. The product contain permethrins which are very toxic to cats. The toxicity can be deadly. I would highly recommend that you get her to your vet ASAP. She needs to be put on fluids and medication to control the seizures. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
