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 vets can give Dakota a pill that will kill all the fleas on her within half an hour, and apply Advantage after that to ensure a flea-free kitty and household. What is it that has you worried?

She's lost weight and is VERY skinny. I'm worried that it's more than the fleas caused the sudden loss.

Hmm, I'd be worried, too. What did the vet have to say?

What did the vet have to say?

A slightly enlarged thyroid and slightly smaller than should be kidneys. Blood and urine tests will give a clearer picture on her health.
She's over nine years old now so I think that makes her a senior so she may just finally be showing signs of her age. (she certainly doesn't act like a senior though.) :o)
