Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Are you using any flea prevention on Catty? If so, what? How often is it applied?
I think that would probably be the best route of action. It sounds like you are witnessing flea dirt on her and it will only continue without some flea prevention being applied. Fleas, and it sounds like she does have them although you're seeing only the after effects with itching and flea dirt, are best combated with flea prevention although baths can be a good intermediate step. Now that the bath is done, progressing to using flea prevention should be the next step. To help with the itching, you can also use the human OTC antihistamine Chlorpheniramine. You can give 1-4mg by mouth up to twice daily.
