Thanks for asking about Lil Peep. If he goes outside at all, or if you have pets in the house with him that go out, I would start to use a flea product on him. It depends what you are using, but many flea product are safe for kittens his age, but check the label to be sure.

If he is an only pet, and does not go outside, then the risk of fleas is less (unless he already has them).
