Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend.  We’re having a good weekend, so far anyways, but last weekend was, well, interesting.  I’m not sure interesting is the right word, but it was something else.

Once a month we all get “flea treatments” even though we don’t have fleas.  Well, I don’t have fleas and I probably should speak for the others.  Dad says there are two good reasons we get flea treatments, even though we are all inside-only kitties.  The first reason is that Sister Zoe is allergic to fleas.  The second reason is that even though we are inside-only kitties, our peeps are not inside-only peeps.  Dad and Mom are often out feeding the feral kitties, who likely have fleas, and the fleas could hitch a ride inside.

Well, we’re all so good at taking pills and other medicines, so flea treatment is just another thing we don’t mind.  Dad usually just walks up behind us and spreads that goo between our shoulder blades and it’s all done, no big deal.  Until last week.  Dad went to Brian first and right when Dad started to apply the goo, Brian ran, right in mid-swipe.  Not fun, messy too.  Sister Sascha saw Brian run, so she ran. Sister Gracie saw Brian and Sascha run, so she took off too.  Zoe?  Yep.  Me, yep.  You get the picture.  So, what normally takes under ten minutes turned in to a chase and try to catch for a good while.  Oh, and Brian wasn’t happy.  Dad had to scrub that goo off of his back so he would lick it.  Brain was mad at Dad and gave him the big old stink eye and ran from him for most of the day.  Fortunately all was normal once again later that evening.  Such an ordeal though.

That’s the kind of unexpected excitement that happens around our place!  Oh well, some of our moments are never dull.  Have fun everyone and I’ll see you next time!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Wow, that was quite a PITA! We really should have flea treatments around here, since I do go outside now and again on my leash. But so far we haven’t.

We all have to have that flea treatment too and we hate it. Mom has to sneak up on us and do it. The ones outside just smell it and g running, so it takes days to get everyone done around here.
You all have a fantastic day.

Hi Dolly ! Good for you all being cooperative when Dad does your flea treatments OR gives you medicine. Mom wishes I was like that!

Hugs, Sammy

It’s amazing how hard it is to treat us! Yep, mom learned when she still had Admiral that we can absolutely smell it. Mom had gotten it open and was coming into the living room where Admiral was resting on the carpet and Mom had her hands were behind her back. (silly mom) and Admiral’s nose started snipping and she was going in a flash.

Flea treatment for Annabelle consists of lots of corralling!
Mom says Annabelle acts like she is being mistreated when Mom is only helping keep those nasty pests off of her which she is allergic to.
^sigh^
Happy Caturday

Our human keeps a checklist of our names so she can remember who got what because sometimes it can take all day. The first cat or two is fine, but then when the others catch wind, they all go running!!

Haha, things don’t always go as planned. I know Brian couldn’t be too mad at his dad for a long time 🙂 Hopefully it’ll go smoothly next month!

MOL! You certainly gave your dad the runaround. You have reminded my mum that I should have had mine at the beginning of the month. I know what I have got to look forward to in the morning now.

Mol – I guess Brian showed the Dad! Callie had fleas and she rarely goes out. 3 minutes at the most per day. But we had a big flea problem over here. Glad none of you guys have them – those little bugs are no fun!

HAH! I remember when TW used to “dose” Nicky and Autumn. It was an ordeal with Nicky. One of the outdoor kitties, Gertrude, was easier. She could do anything to Gertie. She’d put flea collars on her; take them off after they expired and put another on without a peep from old Gertie.

Never a dull moment in multi-cat families 🙂

Phantom never liked getting his flea and tick treatment. The vet told Mom that some dogs are very sensitive to the “coolness” of it on the skin. When Mom used to buy Frontline, she often thought the Frontline made Phantom sick to his tummy. So she switched to another product. We are both pretty good about letting Mom do it to us, but it does startle us a bit. We like our heartworm protection pills better – they taste good.

How we adore those gorgeous green eyes:)

Talk about herding cats! I used to sneak up on Tommie to apply the stuff. He hated it too. I’ve been thinking about taking Mickey Mouser outside with a harness, but I don’t want to start treating him for a very occasional trip around the yard. Hope this weekend is more relaxing!

Oh my goodness, what an ordeal you all had. I’ve been getting that anti-flea goo for the past 3 months for the same reason as you. I’m indoors, but the humans go out and somehow a flea hitchhiked in and found me. I react horribly to flea bites and bit lots of my floofy furs off. I do wish they could make that anti-flea goo less greasy and less stinky (we use Advantage).

Dad and Mom are awesome, the way they take care of all of you, and the ferals, too. Bless their hearts. ❤

Oh boy, that was a lot of excitement you all had, hope you have an easy Sunday!

We get flea treatments every month, too, even though we are indoor cats, for the very same reasons. Well, mom doesn’t feed the feral cats but she does go outside where they live. She has to “sneak up” on us, too, or we run just in case she is going to do something evil to us.

If any of us hear the cap puncture that little tube of flea stuff, we take off. Our humans cannot understand why we dislike it so much. Doing all eight of us is always an ordeal. You are looking mighty gorgeous today Dolly. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
