Work great, but they're probably not for all cats

I am the owner of a feral barn cat. She is tamed, but has never been in a house and is subjected to every bug and pest imaginable. She hunts half of them for food, and is bitten or stung by the other half. I put on Hartz drops during summer months, especially for mosquitos. The drops really do work for her. The mosquitos do still fly near to her, but never light on her. They seem to be effective for aboutt a month before I notice a little more mosquito activity and apply the drops for another month. All bugs- even wasps - seem to leave her alone when I apply the drops! She is not around other cats or dogs and so has never had a single flea. These drops are oily, and do take a couple of days to dry, so they probably aren't as good for people with indoor cats. They seem to burn or smell bad to her for the first five minutes or so. She blinks her eyes a lot and pouts for a few minutes before she forgets all about having flea dops and goes back to hunting. I'd say these work well for what they're intended.
I would recommend this to a friend!

We saw a reduction in fleas for about 3 days or so, then things were as bad as when we started. A total waste of money. My cats' fur didn't dry for 3 or 4 days, and as soon as it did, the stuff stoped working.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
