Bugging, quite literally! When Zoe went to the Dermatologist Vet last week she had a serum allergy test to see if it would be of any help in determining what has been bugging her. It turns out that those bugs bugging her are fleas, or at least a flea bite. Flea is the only thing that had a positive result on this test. So, given that, we now know something instead of nothing, and I’d have to say that Zoe passed her test.
Funny, as inside only cats you would think this wouldn’t be a problem. However, we don’t have inside only humans and they can bring those little boogers inside with them, unintentionally of course. Our regular Vet, Dr. Anderson, gave Sister Zoe a good inspection for fleas but didn’t see any, and she did give her a flea treatment as she though that might be a possibility. Also, earlier this month our friend Sugar the Golden Retriever had a post that caught our attention and it was called 3 Important Myths about Fleas and Ticks. Item #3 was Indoor Cats Don’t Get Fleas and Ticks. That was a very timely post, thanks Sugar.
Anyways, Zoe has had her second flea treatment and the rest of us have had our first. We’re all going to be closely monitoring the situation to see how it goes. Thanks for all of the purrs and prayers for Sister Zoe, we appreciate them so very much!
