OT, about outdoor cats
LL, I know you've talked about the barn kitties. You know we have this cat that used to be a stray. He has tamed considerably but not enough to take to the vet or even roll him over to examine him. He has fleas, or had. I used something I bought at the grocery store that is put behind the neck and it didn't work. Went to PetSmart and bought something the guy there recommended and put it behind his shoulder blades. He's still scratching but I can't get him to sit still long enough to find any fleas, and when I try to roll over or put my hands on his stomach, he tries to bite.
Dipping or spraying with anything is out of the question. He'd be gone in a flash. Any ideas?
BTW, here is a picture taken today with him playing with a plastic drop cloth. Hope it's not too big. If it is I'll resize it and you may have to clear cookies to see it smaller.
