Well... they'd certainly be less likely to be manic.  :)

What a cute cat. I had an all black cat once and I named her Snowflake for a little spot of white she had on her chest (just like your kitty).

Our cats are currently battling fleas, and it's a miserable experience for everyone in the house. We put the flea medicine (I think Frontline) on them yesterday, but I really hate using that since it makes them so sick.

Found a flea the other day, and you know if you see one there's like a million lurking about.  So, I have declared in my house.  Starting with Advantage for cats.

I put up with a lot of things, but not fleas.  When we got our dog many years ago she came with sand fleas.  Those things were a bitch to get rid of.  Never again.

She's awesome, and deserves some better photos (damn hoomins and their devices!) Feel free to post more.

I forget which we used with Fat Max & Kitty. It was either the Advantage or Frontline.  Basically just put the gel on the back of their neck so they can't lick it and let it absorb.  They never had any problems with it thankfully.

Advantage is better than Frontline in my experience; they're both equally effective at flea extermination but the taste of Advantage only bums out the cat for a day - I think it's the taste, since they're bound to get some of it licked since cats clean their neck fur by using their front leg fur to rub their saliva there.

The stuff works though, and those two brands, expensive as they are, are the only thing worth buying for flea eradication.

I've been told that there's no fleas in CO, or at least the Springs. Regardless, I put something on Ein. Vectra3D. I'm upset that the name is misleading; the glasses didn't make the protection pop.

Thank you, guys.   :)
When I adopted her, I had lost my cat of 19 years about six months prior. When you have a pet by your side for that long, it tears a huge piece out of your soul when they pass. That little kitten brought me out of a severe depression. It's really amazing the impact these little furballs have on our mental well-being (life saving, really). And the really weird thing is, she is the spitting image of the cat I'd lost. Right down to the white puff on the chest and back toe.

I really need to move to a place where I'm allowed to have a kitty.  :(

My mom and I were told by a vet in 1993 to use 7 Dust.  To sprinkle it on the animals.  Also to sprinkle it around the house and vacuum it up.  Didn't really think bad of it at the time, we did it several times.  He's a doctor and you trust doctors, right?

Looking back I see how wrong this is.  7 dust is full of chemicals, didn't realize it at the time.  But it makes me wonder if that was the reason why those two pets died of cancer.  Makes me sad, just think of all the people he told this.  And yes, he is still in practice.

Dr. Jesse of Wytheville, VA, avoid him at all costs.

Can you still buy Sevin dust over the counter?  I thought it was only used in agriculture now.  My dad used to use it outside around the house back in the 70s.  It's pretty scary how many pesticides that were used around the house are now banned.

How long ago did the guy suggest this?

It's still only a suspected carcinogen for humans, but is a known toxin to humans (and pets), so telling someone to put it on the carpet and vacuum it up (putting the dust into the air) was a horrible suggestion even back when we didn't know how bad cumulative exposure was for cancer risk.
