Well it looks like I'll be spending my holidays [which were my intensions any-way] doing a massive cleaning.

TO MY HORROR and embarrassment!!!!!!! Dakota has fleas. I spotted two on her last night.
My poor little baby has fleas. WTF?!? She's an indoor cat!

This perplexes me. Squicks me out! Annoys the fuck out of me. And makes me feel like the horriblest mother pet owner on the planet!!!!!

Dakota is a really pretty eight year old long-hair Hymalain-cross. to me anyway
Dakota is afraid of her own shadow. but is getting better
Dakota is an indoor cat who's never set foot outside in her life. Except to be transported to the v.e.t. and that's always in a carrier
Dakota is only brave enough to scoot out into the hall when I open the apartment door. would there be fleas out there in the carpet?
Dakkota is constantly getting knots in her fur.she hates being combed. Oy.
Dakota hates being cuddled or petted. unless it's on her terms
Dakota is a feisty little hairball and jumps at every opportunity to bite and scratch until she draws blood. which I'm thinking there will be much of tonight when I apply flea killing stuff

Can someone tell me: WHERE THE HELL DID SHE GET THE FLEAS FROM!?!?!?!

Anybody have any tried and true methods of applying flea medicine / treating cats for fleas?

crashcat I'm lookin' at you girlie.

The ankles should have been my alarm bell damn it! I still feel stupid and neglectful about this. I'm thinking she's had them for a while and I've just been too preoccupied to stop and notice. And that's no excuse. She looked good this morning when I left, I don't think the chemicals in the Advantage is going to kill her (which worried me). I guess I just sit and wait for her to stop scratching.
die you little bastards! Die!!

How you doing? How's Crash?!?!?! ::big hugs::

No more beating yourself up, Missy! You would totally not expect to see fleas on Dakota, so of course it wouldn't occur to you that they had invaded! We'll hear no more of that - I asked Dakota herself, and she says, "I love my Mummy - she coos to me, and loves me, and feeds me crunchies, and loves me, and gives me shoe boxes, and loves me." End quote :)
Crash is doing better today, thank you for asking! I'm doing better too :) Will email with details... **big hugs back atcha**
