Cats are not able to fight off fleas on their own. In fact, cats like themselves so much, hence it is a bit trickier to use natural flea repellents on cats. Here are some of the most important natural home remedies to get rid of fleas on cats.

1/ Using a flea comb treated with lemon juice is one of the most effective home remedies to get rid of fleas on cats. Fleas hate the overwhelming smell of lemon.

2/ Apple cider vinegar bath is another effective treatment for fleas. Fleas deter the smell of apple cider vinegar as much as they detest the smell of lemon. Fill a spray bottle with apple cider vinegar. Apply this solution directly on the cat's coat. Let it sit there for 5-minutes before rinsing off wait clean water.

3/ Fleas are attracted to light, and find shiny things irresistible. This is why the soapy water flea trap is so effective in getting rid of fleas. Place a shallow dish with soapy water under a night light. When the fleas hop towards this light, they will fall into the water and drown. Use hot or warm water for better results with the trap.
