Take him to an experienced Vet hospital quickly. Fleas are best controlled with regular all year round application of topical preparations such as monthly Advantage or Frontline.

Use both topical and oral flea products –

1. Use Advantage or Frontline topically once a fortnight instead of monthly during a flea infestation
2. Use Capstar flea tablets 2-3 times a week to kill adult fleas immediately
3. Cats can have a 6 monthly Program injection to stop flea eggs from hatching.

If you are in New South Wales, I would suggest you to get an appointment with Gordon Vet Hospital. They are experts in flea and tick prevention.

Here is a good resource -
