your vet can get you Revolution that kills mange. You can pour it on the cat through the cage on the neck back and top of tail. It lasts a month and it kills mange really well along with ear mites and worms. You have to use it for about three months. The box comes in a three month, six month or 12 month package, but three months usually gets rid of mange.

Are you sure it is mange and not ringworm. You can get a powder for athlete´s foot. Get a trap from a rescue in your area. Put fish from a can like something smelly or Kentucky Fried chicken. While they are in the cage put the powder all over them. If the rescue will loan you long leather gloves you can try to let the cat out in your bathroom. Put all breakable things in your bedroom and keep the door and window closed tight. They will break out of the screen if possible. And then put the powder underneath. Everywhere. Ringworm spreads outward so you have to put it beyond the spot. If you are feeding them I wonder if it is mange. I know Mange on dogs has to be treated for three months or more with a treatment that you put in their mouths. You have to go to the vet to get the appropriate amount of dosage for mange.
