with apologies to Dr Suess.

By the billions. We spray, vacuum, wash, clean, spray, medicate, flea collar, vacuum, spray. Nothing. They are absolutely freakin' everywhere. We decontaminated the cats when we brought them in from the outside, (see article #3) but something went horribly wrong. They are now in the main house. In every room. In every crack and crevice.

Seriously, we have tried every know flea killing product known to modern and stone age man. We have followed up 2 weeks later. We have done everything we can.

When I got home from work today, I set foot in the door and onto the floor. Whammo. Flea on my shin. That fast. I can't sit on the couch or in my favorite chair. They're everywhere. I cannot sit down on a box, I cannot sit down wearing socks. I cannot sit down here or there. I cannot sit down anywhere. I do not like these fleas I have. My jangled nerves I have to salve.

yeesh, okay, there's a reason that T.G. was Dr Suess and not D.W.

The cats have to go.

You know what you have to do. Get rid of the cats.  Eventually the fleas will die off, but expect to get bitten a few times before that happens because they'll be desperate for food.

Either that or you can bug-bomb your entire house, and keep the cats inside 24/7.

I'm sorry you're having such a crappy time of things....I wish there was something I could do to make it better!


There, that was a cyber-hug for you.  Hope that helped.

Thanks so much for the huggles Much needed and appreciated.

As soon as we can get rid of the kitties, there will be a flea massacre such as the world has never before witnessed. The wonton death and destruction of the little parasites will be written in the books of mythology.

Haha!  That sounds like something I'd have written!

I like you, wolf-man.  I think that you're good people.

Thanks dharmagrl...I really appreciate that.

So, when you move, are you going to end up in someplace that has web access? Or are you going to the wilds of Borneo?

I like what you do, continue this way.
