Happy Tuesday everyone! Today is the letter “F” for the a-z blogging challenge.
Fleas are the ultimate “F” word around here. Many of you may recall the flea fiasco we had last summer. It was a nightmare and took a couple of months to have them gone. It also cost over $500 for 3 months of flea treatments for 15 cats and flea bombs and sprays.
I couldn’t figure out how we had so many when we don’t let our kitties outside. I blamed my hubby because he is always outside, I also thought friends or family may have had them when they came in. I finally figured it out, we had taken Spooky in several months before. He had been treated with Frontline for many months before coming in, but I realize now that it wasn’t working. He had been spreading the fleas to all the other kitties for months before we finally realized it.
I don’t like using flea products, but I don’t want to ever have this problem again. Being that it never happened before and I am pretty sure I know how the fleas arrived, I am thinking of not treating the kitties this year. Please let me know if you have indoor only cats and if you use flea treatment during the summer. Thanks for your input.
