How long does it take for a cat's hair to grow back after shaving it???
My cat had fleas, and the fleas were not dying with the flea bath, and I didn't want to re bathe her with all those chemicals, so we shaved her fur off- I think she looks like a rat now, and I just want to know if anyone knows how long it will take for her fur to grow back. Also, when it grows back will it be a nice coat again???
Did you treat your home as well? Because the fleas get into the carpet and upholstery and everywhere. They will just go back on the poor kitty even though she is naked and they will bite your family around their ankles. It's awful. I used to have to use flea bombs when i lived with my Mom years ago. But now I just have indoor kitties and we don't get fleas. My friend shaves her long haired cat twice a year when it gets matted because she doesn't brush her often enough. It usually grows back in a couple of months and starts with fuzz right away. And it's always just as pretty when it comes back in. You should also treat the kitty with something from the vet like Advantage or something. Bad infestations are hard to kick.
Those flea baths are no good. They just kill the fleas and not the eggs. You will have a never ending cycle. You should use vet approved products, like Frontline Plus. Also flea bomb your house. Once this is done, keep your kitty indoors! Safer for you and for your cat!
