I got my cat back from my family (they had been caring for her untill I could get her allowed on my lease) And she was so infested with fleas and ticks she was misserable. I was horrified! This collar really does work in a matter of days. The day after we put it on her dead fleas/ticks and eggs were falling out of her fur everytime I picked her up or pet her. I don't know if it will last a full 7 months (The packaging does say if the infestation is bad collar may need to be replased after 2 or 3 months instead of 7) But I am relieved to not hear her cry out and then start scratching frantically. She is a long haired cat, 15 years old. She gets just as upset at having the monthly liquid treatments as she does at having a collar put on. At least I, hopefully, wont have to terrorize her with a treatment for 7 months! The smell is HORRIBLE but a very small price for me to pay for her comfort. She is my "companion animal" and I owe it to her to treat her right. The price of 1 collar every 7 months is something I can actually afford on my limited SSI incom. Thank you 1800petmeds for providing this product!

Its cheap for a reason
This doesn't work. Our puppy got fleas which spread to the cat. The dog's fleas are under control with his heart worm medicine and flea baths. I wanted to try a cheap cat flea collar before spending a lot more money on other products, while avoiding topical treatment because my cat doesn't do well with them. I didn't expect the collar to kill all of the fleas, but I did at least want to try to get them under control. We followed the directions, its been over a week. His fleas haven't gotten any better. We can still see large fleas, eggs and larva. yuck.

Maybe it's good at prevention? If your cat already has fleas, it won't get rid of them.
