HITCH HIKERS

On Friday night, Mommy noticed that I was itching more than usual. At first, she thought I was stealing Cam's food again (she saw me try to do it the other day). Anyway, she took the flea comb to my coat and pulled up some flea dirt and a few fleas. She did it again and found more. Note: we are inside cats and these fleas must have been hitch hikers and came in on Mommy's shoes or maybe even the grocery bags as she always sets them on the stoop before she opens the front door. Perhaps they could have come in our upstairs windows while they were open. That's some high leaping, if that's possible. We never had this problem since 2009 as Cam was already an indoors cat and I was not allowed out anymore because of my heart condition and arthritis. We hadn't any fleas until this year! Mommy saved a lot of money for three years.

This year, we're not so lucky! Merl also had a lot of fleas (but he never had the itchies like me). Landy had a couple and so did Bail. Mommy found nothing on Cam except for dandruff. She doesn't hang with us boys so she got lucky.

Anyway, Mommy treated Merl and I Friday night and watched us carefully so we wouldn't lick the spots where she put the flea stuff. We did good and didn't lick at all. Merl says he never felt the stuff on his neck as his fur is so thick.

The next morning Landy was next and he freaked out when Mommy put the stuff on him. Boy was he a BIG BABY about this! I suppose he got spooked by the way the stuff felt cold on the back of his neck and didn't like the squirting noise it made when Mommy squeezed the tube. He took off like a bat out of you know where and flew downstairs!

Poor Bail, didn't like it either, but Mommy managed to hold him on the bed for a little bit and he took off.

Well, that's it for now. I'll let Bail blog about his grooming ordeal and Merl about the nasty t-storm we had Friday night.

Purrs & Breeps,

Sampy
