Thanks to Budak for this news alert.
This is not something new or fresh – many animal welfare organisations have posted alerts and warnings about the danger that dog flea treatment pose to cats, eg fabcats.org, the hsus. This is in addition to the danger that some cat flea treatment post to kitties.
Be aware and mindful that your actions do not put your companion animal in danger, don’t give Jolly Rogers an excuse to laugh at your kitty’s expense!

Hundreds of cats may have died because their owners mistakenly treated them with anti-flea products intended for dogs, a study suggests. The Veterinary Poisons Information Service found that one in 10 cats referred to it had died after being exposed to permethrin.
