I found a flea. a real live flea!
I just hate to put the flea drops on the cat unless we see a flea as she gets all spastic and convulsive. But, Sallycat is leaving tuffs of hair everywhere she sits. And I noticed she was digging at herself, and reaching back and biting her leg or back. So, I put the drops on her. And of course, she did not like it. And tried to get away. So I brushed the spot to make sure I got it on her skin, and the brush caught a real, live flea! Yippeee! She IS flea infested after all.
Well, the flea drops say they get rid of most of the fleas within 12 hours. She ought to be feeling better soon. And maybe the hair tuffs will stop appearing on the carpet every few minutes. Poor tiddy-tatt.
