Womancat Wensday

AYLA:   I am irritated.  Literally...  We all got flea collars weeks ago.  They work, fleas dropped right off us.  Oh, not manny; its not like we were INFESTED!  But we each had a few.  I blame Laz of course.  We didnt have anny BEFORE he arrived.

TBT:  And not for a year after he arrived either, Ayla; I would have noticed in a year...

AYLA:  I'll blame who I want!  Annyway, the Brofurs didnt mind the collars at all.  Mine made me itch!  In fact, it was so bad, I scratched off fur around it in 2 places.  An when TBT saw me scratchin at it, he checked.  I dont like him feelin around my neck, but I'm glad he did.

I not only scratched off some fur, I scratched off some skin. The collar itself was rather loose, so it wasn't that.  Had ta be the stuff in the collar.   So he took it off.  It wasnt easy.  The collar has some lumps to hold it in place.  But he was both forciful and careful and I DID want it off.  When it was just open-enough, he slid it over my head to avoid more pulling on my neck.  I was glad about that.

The spots are about healed.  But he needs ta talk ta the vet about other flea controls for me.  I mean, *I* sure dont wanna be the only flea-target in the house!

I kinna wish the collar had werked for me.  I had little bumps at the base of my tail and they disappeared a couple weeks after I wore the collar.  He and I didn't connect those to fleas, but apparently they were.  We will see if those bumps return...

Sorry I dont have anny pictures of the scratch-spots, but I refused.  Princesses just NEVER show ugly spots, you know...

One other thing I should mention.  TBT put some Triple Ointment (that he uses hisself) on the wounds at first, but he looked it up about cats and found there can be a rare reaction.  I didn't have one, so its all OK.  But he stopped "just in case".  

Well, just so there is a picture...


And because it IS Ginger Day, here is one of Marley, too...  Loving his hammick!
