More Fleas

Mom has been slack lately! She discovered fleas on me in August (after I was repeatedly scratching and licking for a couple of weeks) and got some medicine from the vet to get rid of them. My second treatment was due last week. Well, Mom had to go to Atlanta for a meeting and she forgot to give me the second treatment.

I started giving her hints last week that it was time again (licking, scratching and giving her the "look") and she finally got the message yesterday. When she looked under all of my floof, there were more fleas!

Mom: I'm so sorry, Praline

Praline: Just don't let it happen again!

"Give me my flea medicine!"

Oh, we hate fleas!! Mama has found a couple here & there on Fetus, but we don't have the green papers to get the medicine from the V-E-T. We found out that the cheap stuff from the store doesn't work. Mama just keeps combing us with the flea comb & killing the fleas she finds. Nasty critters!

Hugs & Purrs,

I dosen't know what a flea is but they sound like horrible things!!!
Momma just gives us these yukky drops each month and says why because " we don;t want you to have any nasty worms in your insides or fleas on your out", I thoughts she was just bluffing, but I think I iz glad I getz it now :)

Since I came to live with mum and dad I've never had fleas. I think that is a good thing?

Mom says the best way to win the war on fleas is to noever to have them so we get the once a month squirt on the back of our necks. There are several brands, and they both work well. Mom use to buy Frontline but now gets Revolution. It's the one that also prevents several types of worms and ear mites - Bonus - it's also cheaper. We've never had fleas.

Our v-e-t tolded the mom that our flea med can go on every 3 weeks, dat we didnt has to wait for 4 weeks. Umm dat is if yoo has the drop on da neck stuff. We dont like the spray stuff dat the mom got even though it was all natural (it smelled bad).

Praline! The same thing happened with me and mommy. I've gotten my revenge by getting my fleas to bite HER though . . . and mommy is sensitive to flea bites. So now she is sharing my misery.

I only feel a little bit bad about it.

Oh, you poor baby! We are very lucky we have no experience with themz fleaz.

How dare your Mom forget! You should punish her by ignoring her until she apologizes the right way - with lots of treats and scritches and snuggles and cuddles. Only then should you forgive her!

Patty Skypants said...

Oh NO! Poor purrity Sweet P!

Mickey said...

Hahahahaha!!! That really is an 'I MEAN IT' face!!!!!
Tell her that if she forgets again you will share your fleas with her ;)

I think your face says it all. I bet she won't forget again.

Beside treating to Praline, you must treat your house. It is very easy that the fleas and its eggs hide in the carpets. The best products that I know are of bayer ("advantage" and "advocate"). They treat to the cat and to the home.

Lorianna said...

Oh Praline that look on your face is just priceless! Yes, I think I will "Frontline" everyone here again too. Hopefully Friday we will have some $$$ in the budget for it. I want them gone before I close up the house for the winter. (ick, I hate that word!)
How is Mommy Paula feeling? I hope your meds kill those nasty things soon! And, they better stay out of Mommy's rugs too!
Hugs and Smoochies,
Lorianna

Yikes, Praline! The F word!!! That's not good at all! Let's hope that medicine that your mom finally gave you does the trick and gets rid of them once and for all!
