Cats are often poisoned by topical flea medications intended for dogs. Not all flea medications are clearly marked, so this is something to be especially wary of. Seizures, vomiting, and even death can occur if they're exposed. Bathing a cat in this instance is not always advisable, as some toxins are activated by water. After consulting the ASPCA, if they advise you to bathe your cat, use warm (not hot!) water and a mild shampoo. Rinse your pet thoroughly and then dry them with a towel, never with a blow dryer. After, transport your cat to a vet for further care.
