Harmony brought home a 1000 of her closest friends. Several got to meet me last night. Tonight will be a trip to the local PetCo to find something that I can use on an 8 week old kitten to get rid of these little friends that she brought along with her.
And now today… I am feeling a little creepy crawly knowing that these little critters are in my house. I have never ever had a flea-infested house except for the time I lived with a friend and her seeing eye dog. The problem was so bad we(me and my boyfriend) had to spray the whole house then strip off our clothes, take a shower and leave the house. You could positively feel the little fleas jumping on you.
When I had Luca we never ever had a problem with fleas in the house. She was allergic to fleas and would chew on your skin if she was infected. We would immediately deal with the issue and fleas would be gone. We would also be proactive if she was going into the kennel or down to my mother-in-laws and put flea stuff on her so she wouldn’t get infected. Watching your dog chew her skin until it bleeds is not a pleasant sight so it was better on everybody(especially her!) to be proactive rather than reactive.
