I put baby powder on the dog on the couch on the bed lol. I even purchased a flea trap from Ace Hardare that has a night light and sticky paper. The fleas are attracted to the light but get stuck on the sticky paper. I have to change it every 30 days

Do NOT use Baby Powder on cats!

Talcum powder, made from the mineral talc, is the primary ingredient in
baby powder, many adult topical powders and some pet grooming products.
If inhaled or swallowed, talcum powder can poison a cat. Meanwhile, some
studies link talcum powder and cancer.

Also,
If you use Borax Laundry Additive (NOT Boric Acid! Boric Acid is a
completely different chemical) to kill fleas in your carpeting, it is
advised to keep your cats away from it. Cats are highly sensitive to
powders they might breath in and also can get very sick or die. Do NOT
put Borax on your Cats or Dogs.
