We're Still Here!

Well, me and my Fleeze are, anyway. And make no mistake about it: My Fleeze is real! We are working on committing mass flea-icide via Advantage, and Other Means (flea combing, etc.) They came this time last year too, and eventually they were deemed eradicated. The Big Mistake, which we will not repeat, was being overconfident and stopping the Advantage treatments sometime last fall. Once they are gone again, the Human says I will stay on an Advantage regimen so I will not be a tasty target in the future.
The Human has been pretty scarce as the first week of school commenced last Monday. On the plus side, she went to the special little store that carries Spot's Stew and she brought some home to me tonight. Nommity-nom-nom-nom.

  1. Is that...? Could it be...? Is that our pal Spitty ? Long time no see! So glad you are back sir. Sampo has been yelling about his buddy being absent. Veikko wants to know what a flea is, and was unimpressed when Aila said 'look in the mirror'.

    GOod to see you back and well fed.

  2. Looks like you are feasting there sweetie pie. Hey, we use Seresto collar for fleas and tick and so far that works for us.

  3. The advantage of living in Finland is definitely that it's very unlikely to get fleas here. Those suckers don't like our climate.

    We had no idea that it's wise to continue treatment all year, but we think your human should have informed herself better - it's you who's suffering now, isn't it? Or did some fleas hop over to hairless skin?

  7. Have your Mom get some Diatomaceous Earth -it goes in corners,rugs, bedding -smothers the little buggers and will not hurt you (she can rub it on you - won't hurt even if you lick it), Garden stores and Tractor Supply have it. It's as fine as talcum powder. Not a substiture for Advantage, but a natural back up !

  8. Nice new foods. Yeah, if you have fleas, you might have to stay on the treatment so they don't come back.

  10. Eat up, Spitty! You've got a battle to wage, and you'll need all of your strength against them darn bugs.

Leave me a meow or a hiss; I don't mind a hiss or two. . . or even a bitey.
