Be very careful that the flea products you use on cats are FOR cats- dog product can be toxic to cats and result in an ER visit and a whopping bill if you want to save your cat.
I live in South Texas, aka flea hell, and the only thing I use and recommend is Revolution. Frontline doesn't seem to work, flea collars don't do sh--, and the little buggers are everywhere. Revolution on every cat once a month, vacuum all carpet and cracks in floors/wood/tile, bomb the house and wash all the bedding where the cats spend time in hot water and dry on hot. If you have any other furry pets, those will need to be treated too. Baths are great... if you can do it to your cat without getting killed, but they only kill the fleas ON the cat, they don't prevent new ones from hopping on and starting to reproduce 2 hours later.
