cats with fleaswe have four (!) cats. Three of which have fleas... the other is completely unaffected! We have been deflea-ing the house with natural stuff, and bathing the two cats who are suffering the most. I'm sure that there's a great flea remedy (or twelve). Please help!
the worst affected cat is biting and licking herself constantly.
she seems to be worst affected on the head and face.
They are all in good spirits.

Perhaps Pulex 6c or 6x would be useful. You could put in the cats water...separate from the other cats water if possible. This has worked with our cat. What color is the cat, personality? Other health issues may be affecting this particular cat. Sometimes light colored cats have more problems than others...

The two worst affected cats were ferral as little kittens... I trapped them late in the winter as they were freezing :( I'm sure their poor little immune systems are quite disrupted from that experience - and that's why it's worse for them.
I've added nutritional yeast to their diets, which helps.
The worst affected cat is a very small (4.5 lbs) grey tabby. She is somewhat timid and very cuddly. No other health problems that I can detect.
Her brother, is second worst off. He is a black cat - looks like he may be a siamese mix. I worry about his health... I've just treated him for putrid smelling loose stools with Arsenicum - it seems to have resolved after one dose. He's a good natured independant cat, who is still slightly weary of people who are not lying down. I've made a difficult decision to have him neutered (on Monday) as he has started spraying... I worry about the repercussions of this. I have some Nux, Arnica, and perhaps Staphysagria in my arsenal for after the surgery.

Well, this all sounds very good to me, perhaps you could do Calendula before Nux...to promote healing...
I've been doing some research on giving our cat raw food, as this is better for them. It would be closer to the diet they would have without human intervention.
You could find some info at a BARF site (bone and raw food). It seems that chicken necks are easy to eat and digest for cats. I'm going to try this, but give it outside. Having raw chicken strewn around my kitchen seems, well, gross, to me.
I also use diatomaceous earth around the house and outside where the cat frequents. This is non-toxic and kills fleas and other pests by abrading their bodies. I've used in the garden as well. I've even put it on the cat, very, very carefully if she got a severe infestation, don't breathe the dust. I use a mask or handerchief around my mouth and nose.
