Earlier we saw A. J. just sleeping. He had Dvd’s under him. We know we should abide and dwell peacefully in God’s care. That being said, I was going to entitle this fleas, Fla. and fleeing….Yes, we have and love our 8 indoor cats. We live in Fla. and have heard fleas are worse here. I recall having one cat in Ohio, back in the 1970’s, and he went outside and in again often. He slept with me and listened to all my tales and thoughts. Only now and again did my mother get him a grocery store flea collar which he promptly took off in never more than 2 days. Current day, we have a wooden lanai and a cat door so the “great 8” can come and go to the back porch (which is screened) whenever they like.
Now we used to live in the “city” and only had 2 kitties. The eldest found she was experiencing an allergic reaction to fleas and had a bare belly for a while. We took our bare bellied, black cat to the doctor. She got her shot and she was fine. We still have her. She is 13. In the last 4 years, we moved to the country. I did volunteering with shelters and rescuing and adopting. We got more kitties.
My title for next blog section will be Kids and Family. We know if you live with care for, feed, clean up after and get unconditional love from pets: they are your family.
I must take after my maternal grandmother who was said to always have wanted a cat farm. So, we “flea dot”, we bomb, and we have a separate can of flea spray for furniture. We also have flea shampooed the great 8 and have put flea powder on to the point we about surrender. No, that’s not the only reason we want to move to Ohio….Ahhhh, but we have one handsome red tabby who has more trouble with fleas than the others. He has a bunch of physical reactions. We drove him to the doctor months ago. He got meds. Recently, I just went and got some more meds from the doctor for him. The doctor lovingly said give him the pill every day for 2 weeks and then every other day for 2 more weeks. This is no easy task. It’s often comical. I reward him with a Temptation treat after, though. Yay!
