The Thinker

I am contemplating the demise of these fleas that I've been hosting at Spitty's Airbnb for a couple of weeks now.

Should I feel guilty for their assassination at the hands of the Human?

After all, they never paid their rent, they took Advantage (heh, heh) of three free squares a day, plus unlimited snacks, and honestly, they weren't very polite.

No, all in all, I am not going to miss them when they Check Out over the next several days. I hope I get a really bad Yelp review.

Hey, if they are bad tenants, stealing food and not paying rent, who cares what they think?

They deserve to be evicted, Spitty.

I admire you for considering the situation fairly and objectively and I think you've arrived at a very sensible conclusion. How about jumping on Yelp and giving THEM a bad review so that other pusscats know better than to play host to them in future?

We could totally inundate their Yelp with bad reviews, Spitty!

We'll ignore the reviews, we know the true Spitty is not a fleabag Kitty

I wonder who the guilty person was who brought them IN to you? ( here, it used to be the vet techs who came to care for Admiral while mom was gone). Once, the electrician. He had a dog. Mom was unknowledgeable and thought dog fleas differentiated between dogs and cats. Um....no.

King Spitty, I just dosed Patty O'Malley too, and both he and Sweetie got a Capstar pill for good measure. Hope that your 'tenants' drop dead quickly!

Those fleas deserve ta die, Spitty! Theyre free-loaders, neer-do-wells, and just plain old blood-suckers...

To flea or not to flea...

Advantage-MOL! Good one. We had fleas 2 years ago and it was a nightmare.

Spitty, we feel your pain.

OK, not really. But we are sorry you have this flea and ant problem. So who did what to hiss off Bast, we wonder?

P.S. Our mom says 50/50 white vinegar and water in a spray bottle will make the ants go away. (Well, we assume she has to spray it, too. Or barring that, Combat ant traps are great.) When there was that horrible flea problem at our house, Mom would keep cups of water with a drop or two of dishwashing liquid all over to drown fleas as she found them. Apparently she also went mental combing Eddie and Sophie like every two minutes, held any culprits against the comb teeth until they were dunked in the soap water. (Soap works to break the surface tension of the water, otherwise, the stupid things will just bounce off.) You'll be happy to know that getting a real bath did not help much.

Spitty, however did you get those nasty fleas anyway? Hope they are all deaded very soon. Misty May is on our blog today, especially for you. She'll be really sad if you don't stop by to see her. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Heh heh! You must have been a very nice host for those first weeks. I’m sorry I couldn’t stay on the Front Lines with you. Viva la Revolution!

Oh wait wait wait wait! Spitty has fleas?? I'm sorry, but I seem to recall somecat showing up in a hazmat suit when Star was similarly afflicted and not getting any sympathy at all! I wonder if any girlcats are going to show up in hazmat suits to see you while you have your unwanted 'friends' in your furs?
However, I, the Celestial Kitties human, would still pet you because you're still the most adorable lothario ever. :D
