Toby's Diary

Flea treatment turned me white!

Yesterday was another happy day as mum was home all the day and we helped her do some clearing out and then she dusted and we love the feather duster more than any of her other toys.

But then it was flea treatment time. Mum was using a new brand as it's cheaper than the one the vets sold her. I didn't really notice it go on but later Josie said it smelled wrong and tried to lick it off. Mum stopped her as it isn't good in cats' tummies she said.

Then this morning mum noticed all white on my fur where it had gone on. She thought she had bleached me and it took a lot of tummy rubs to make me feel better about that I can tell you. Only all the wiggling about rubbed the white off so I am OK again and back to my normal colours in the normal places.

I reckon I would rather have fleas!!

What did your mum use on you and Josie Toby?
Just asking because some of the over counter stuff isn't safe, they keep selling it though.

I have to get my flea treatment once a month as I'm allergic to fleas. You don't want them even if you're not. You and Josie need to be careful that the flea stuff doesn't make you sick or worse. Please promise me no matter what you do with stuff you won't lick it off.

Glad you didn't stay white!

Mum used 'Bob Martin' which is a brand she recognised so thought would be OK and she got it at a big shop and it was in date and everything. Josie and I are both in our usual good health and spirits so it seems OK but she didn't like the white (which Josie had too, it just didn't show so much on her)
