ARGH! Fleas! My strictly indoor cats have fleas. And not just one or two. There I am petting one, he gets down and I see a single flea on my clothing. I grabbed a flea comb, tested the other 3 and found DOZENS of the nasties. How on earth I could get that many fleas without ever seeing one on the cats is unbelievable. I combed and combed yesterday, and got about 6 dozen, combed again this a.m., and found maybe 2 doz, combed again tonite and just a couple, which means ( I hope that the flea treatment has kicked in). Got some of the IGR stuff to spray, but will have to do that in rotation so I can keep the furchildren off of stuff while it dries. Tomorrow I get to start washing all washables--not how I planned on spending part of my summer vacation!
So, fellow flea infested friends, what's your favorite de flea ing method? I guess I've been lucky--in 20 years of having indoor cats, I found one flea once before. We had a very mild winter here, and if I had had any sense, I should have been checking with the comb. But as I said, I just don't know how I managed to miss seeing these. I know I'm near sighted, but come on! Maybe I have a new variety of stealth fleas.
