To the Vet!  Home cures and green cures for mites are typically uneffective and sometimes dangerous to the animal.

Mites can range from temporarily irritating to dangerously infective.  They burrow into the skin and that leads to infections and wet sores.  In a few cases once they've established a foothold they are extremely difficult to eliminate.  Take care of this before it gets out of hand.

The vet will proscribe a safe treatment and in a few days the mites are gone and the cats are happy again and so will you.
