    Now that's just cruel. I'm calling the SPCA right now. The preferred method is to put them in the washing machine for 30 minutes.

    Do I use a fabric softener sheet while drying them in the dryer too, or is that bad for kittens?

    If it's a short-hair, no. Long hair, definitely. You'll have to use your own judgement for the in-between cats.

    Good thing mom and dad had your tail removed, otherwise it might have been you.

    I usually just make a circumferential slit in the skin around the neck and strip the skin and fur off in it's entirety, turn it inside out, and then re-insert the denuded cat into it.

    With the fur on the inside they remain warm, and now the outer layer basically forms a full-body scab which is impenetrable to fleas.

    You should buy a fire retardant cat.
