You know, if you are a business man (woman) and you enter people's homes to do a service, and...more importantly if you have outdoor or indoor outdoor pets, for PETE SAKES!! Get them flea control! If there is not flea control, you, the business person will have fleas on you and you will oftentimes bring them into a flea free home and infest a flea free pet and their home.
Needless to say this is what has happened yet again. This is the sixth time I have had fleas infest the house and cat and I KNOW who brought them in..it was the electrician I so like and who is so reasonable. The last time it was the carpenter. Both live in the boonies. I have seen both places of residence. Heavily wooded, weeded and full of pets and fleas. Thanks, guys.
Have my cat always prepared with flea meds did I hear you say? What if she gets sickened by the flea drops as she did the last time for sure? What if I have to call poison control because I, in handling her however carefully also had a reaction to the flea drops? I only petted her away from where they were applied and I had tingling mouth and tongue. Scared me to death and now..I have to go through it again. I can't even give her the drops..I have to wait and make a visit to the Vet..she has to go anyway to be weighed and have her blood tests to see how she's doing. Why can't *I* give them? because she runs and hides for days as she can smell them as I approach and they make her sick. Like any sensible person, she flees the flea med.
OK. Done. Grrrr.
