Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am very sorry to hear about your cat. Unfortunately this is an emergency situation. Many cats are very sensitive to flea products sold in pet stores and can have serious reaction including tremors and seizures. These reactions require emergency treatment including injectable medication to help control the tremors or seizures. http://www.petmd.com/cat/conditions/neurological/c_ct_pyrethrin_pyrethroid_toxicity

Do you have an emergency clinic in your area? If you tell me where you are located, I can try to see if I can find one nearby.

So if your vet is closed, you need to find somewhere else to take your kitty. It looks like there are some vets in your area that are open until noon. These include

Western Reserve Animal Clinic(###) ###-####/p>

Country Doctor Vet Clinic(###) ###-####/p>

Greenville Veterinary Clinic(###) ###-####/p>

and this one looks like it is open until 2:

Family Pet Center - Countryside Animal Hospital

8004 State Route 5
Kinsman, OH 44428
Phone:(###) ###-####/strong>

I would call one right away to see if you can bring your kitty in. If not, they may be able to refer you to an emergency clinic location (that is open after hours). I did find one in Girard, OH,
