I can tell you this kitten has a lot of fight in her.
I have been treating my kitten for the past few weeks, with very little results only because she dosen't let me finish the process so then I have to wait until she calms down some, then when she comes to me when I call her then I'm ready as well as she is. I have started by putting neem oil & vitamin oil on these mites just to start any process I could until I found this site. Even though I wasn't about to wash off the oil's and put her through too many ordeals at one time, I had to cut corners as best as I could and try being consistant, my kitten is a fighter in many ways, one she fights to live and two fights me because she thinks I am trying to do her harm/and the water bit? I'm trying to drown her(NOT)lol This is what I did, it had to be a one time deal until a few more weeks when she re-builds her confidence in me again. So I put a shower chair in my bath tub, I set up all the things I needed to give her a bath, I had already put the borax & peroxide on the night before, so the items in my bath tub;I put ACV, dawn dish liquid a very large bowl filled with ACV and warm water, I wore thin pants and a shirt in the shower, I sat in the shower chair with a heavy bath mat on my lap for claw protection then I had the kitten passed into me;as I applied the water an ACV I also applied the dish liquid and washed her good all over then rinsed her with fresh ACV and warm water and now she appears to be a nice fresh clean kitty;I hope :o) I'm quite sure there will be more treatments along the way as she was covered from head to toe. They were some huge dudes and dudettes chuckles. Right now she is cleaning herself with the most of her worries taken care of. She thinks she is hiding on me because she can't see me, but I can see her. And to think this kitten wouldn't have had a chance other wise. IT's us; you, me and thee that make a huge difference in these little babies lives. I hope this site goes on for many, many years on. good luck & god bless.
As I had written in previous messages, I have a stray kitten here she is the sweetest kitty ever, I'm willing to try most any thing to help her get better and I might say she has improved a wee bit from the time I found her from five to ten weeks later, at first she could not hold any food down at all, she was biting & itching constantly, I gave her Apple Cider Vinegar everyday & now she eats everything constantly and still wants more, because of these mites they suck the nutrients from the animals bodies. I have actually seen two of these mites flying around the house after one of my kitties treatments of borax and peroxide then I put vit. E all over her as these mites couldn't get back on board or whatever. These mites have an all black body except on top of the back has an oval shape blood red on it's back and they are some big; so they must burrow real deep. I have been giving my kitten a probiotic 500mg which seems to some what help. I'm very nervous as it's so much harder to do a cat/kitten because they fear water. I still see red dots on her back? she won't sit still so I can examine her and I don't really have anyone to help me with her. I was wondering if it be acceptable to use a dropper and put mineral oil in her ears? they are dirty and infested. Every time I call my vet his wife's calculator starts kicking in.
I had some what expected and/or hoped for a quick remedy never knowing what these mites are or how they were eliminated. I read where it's worse for the animal if they get too stressed out so I try to let her rest a few days but by then she runs from me. I really hate putting her through this again. How can I tell if she has anymore? And does these red dots mean they are still there? Thanks every one.
I'm really feeling so bad about my beautiful little kitty, she has both returning mange and an upper resp. Infection. I did good for the remainder of the summer and allowed her to play even though she tired easily. But it seems that the mange comes in or out for the winter and now she is loaded. I used the usual dosing of borax and peroxide, it got rid of only a few and there was another huge amount left, so I found a great nit comb, I put a natural oil on her fur and just comb them out, they totally grossed me out they are so big and black, also looked like white ones where they may have been eggs. Her body always feels cold to me. I'm hoping to try and do some less evasive remedies and only pray they continue to work. I can say this; she is some strong trooper. I hope she continues to hang on in the battle to combat these two diseases
Thank you so much for this site and letting me share as well as you sharing with me. God bless
Sally's Cat Mange Cure:
We had a stray cat that we made friends with, who would just come hang out with us when we'd sit outside. One day his coat started to turn orange (he was black) and the fur started falling out. Under it I could see that he had an itchy painful rash. I was pretty sure it was mange, so I read up on it and invented the following cure.
I mixed together equal parts sea salt (has to be sea salt, not iodized) hydrogen peroxide, and extra virgin olive oil, mixed it up, and, with a plastic glove gooped it on his infected areas. He was a sometimes skittish cat, but he still let me smooth it on these painful areas, which suggested to me that it felt ok on his skin. I kid you not, the very next day, the sores were healing up, and within 2 days, his fur was growing back. I'd say within 2 weeks his fur was pretty much back to normal. It was great to see him comfortable again, as he was a complete cutie.
Not sure if EVO, sea salt or h2o2 are ok for dogs, but it works amazingly for cats. Plus it seems comfortable, rather than painful for them to have it put on them. I'm thinking he licked it a little, and also ingested, the concoction. As a side note, if a cat has worms, if you mix a little loose, raw tobacco in his food, it eliminates the worms quickly, and harmlessly.

I used Ted's recipe and I used a rag to give my poor stray a sponge bath. I put him in a large kennel and was able to wipe him down pretty well with Ted's recipe. My kitty had the mange on his head and most of his back along the spine area. He had lost quite a bit of hair and his skin was red, inflamed and scabby. After 3 days, there was no more redness and hair was beginning to grow. After 1 week, he is 95 percent healed!! This is miracle stuff! He's a completely different cat in just one week! He's actually soft to touch! Thank you so much! I wish I could post pictures of the results after just one week!
