Does this happen to you guys?


The humans have got this stuff in a little vial which is supposed to kill fleas and ticks. They put it on the back of my neck where I can't lick it off and IT STINKS!

They put some on me this morning, so I had to run around and around in the snow to try and get rid of the smell. See my pawprints going around in circles?

The humans said it's because I hang around near squirrels and foxes and things and because spring is coming (fleas like warm weather apparently). YUCK!

Yes, our humans have done this to us! But we are indoor kitties, so they don't do it often!

My one dog gets fleas alot, and sometimes that stuff doesn't even help him. Poor guy.

And yes, that stuff smells so bad it makes me feel sick.

Daisy said...

Look, you made a little racetrack! I haven't had that stuff on me, because I haven't had fleas yet. But now that I am going out in my stroller and on my leash, I might have to have that stuff too.

You poor thing...they don't do it on me 'cos I stay indoor but once they had to give me some medicine and I was not happy about it at all...they were very sneaky on me...

Don't freeze your paws out there...

Oooh, keep that snow away from New Mexico! I have to start with the flea stuff too 'cuz I sneak outdoors when I can. My Mom gets upset but it's fun.

Oh, bless your heart. We can see where you ran around in circles. And you know if you eat a flea containing a tapeworm larva, then you'll get tapeworms? Bunnies are really good about passing fleas with tapeworms to poodins.
We don't have to get treated because we are indoor and in our cage only and fleas know better than to get in our cage!!!
Oh, we haven't received your snow package yet!

Thank you for your kind words on our blog. We appreciate it.

we overheard that that's supposed to happen to us tonight. we run around like that too - minus the snow.

Pablo said...

Yep, I get it from spring to autumn, too. The thing I hate about it is how cold and wet it is on your back when it seeps through your furs onto your skin. Ooh, it makes me run and run around the house cause I think someone is squirting me for being naughty. Then I remember what it is and give Nick and/or Kate dirty looks. They think it's so funny. I think they suck.

We have indoor kitties, too. So sorry you have to endure such things.

Nope never had the stuff on me sounds bad. Yet you do look very cute in the snow.

George, Tipper, Max & Misty said...

Sorry we can't help you, Faz. We're flea free and never go out so feel confident we'll stay that way.

I get that sometimes too. I HATE that stuff! I always wiggle at the last moment though, so my OTW puts it on in the wrong spot and I can try to get it off.

I get it every spring too, 'cause Vancouver has a big flea problem. I didn't know cities could get fleas, but I guess it does.

I have some good news though! When I went to the vet when I was sick a little while back, my OTW asked the vet about fleas here and Dr Tara said Peace River doesn't get fleas!!! So no yucky stuff this year for me!

Phoebe said...

Faz, I don't know how we missed so many of your posts recently.

Monica and I get some of that yucky stuff every once in a while. Since we live inside we don't get fleas much. We had a terrible, horrible flea episode when we first moved here because our cousins (who were there before us) had fleas. When we arrived, those fleas were mighty hungry and it was terrible. That yucky smelly stuff worked in about 2 days.

Oh Faz you poor thing!

Big Piney Woods Cats said...

Oh my goodness, you have snow!!!

We don't have to have the stuff put on us, cuz we can never ever go in the OUT. Mistrie gets it though.

Oh yeah, Faz, we get doused with that stuff, too. It makes us drool, and not in a good way!

Bad Kitty Cats & Megan said...

Oh we hate it! And we think our human hates it too since we are Eight Bad Kitty Cats. She lines us up and places the icky stuff on and throws us out and we run like crazy!

Poor Faz, but it's a good thing we are told. Purrs

Eric and Flynn said...

Yup we get that too. We wuz looking at the kitties on the calendar and we saw that we haf to get it tomorrow. We get it efurry month cuz we go out where rabbits and mice and birds go.We had worse yesterday though. Mum put nasty white paste in our mouths. She said it is so we don't get worms, but it tasted terrible, and we wouldn't even eat our Temtayshuns after.It must be Flynn's fault cuz he is always in the garden digging up worms.
