Are you kidding?
Had the cats to the vet this morning for annual check up. White kitty has a mild heart murmur that we will keep an eye on. She is 17. Orange kitty is fine....except.....they found fleas!
I flipped. How did my 100% indoor cats get fleas? Well, here in the south, I guess they run rampant. Add in that we live in a townhouse, and the neighbor has dogs. Vet said they could have come through the wall or hopped on us outside and hitched a ride in. Anyway you slice it....we have a very mild flea issue.
Vet said we need to wash everything in hot water.....several times. A few times a week to start...then weekly. Furniture needs daily vacuuming. The cats are now on flea prevention meds. May take several months to be sure we are flea free.
Of course the vacuum just broke last week. Part has been ordered...but not due to come in until next week. Better than spending $250 on a new vacuum (Bissell Pet Eraser).
My water bill is going to go through the roof. As I found out...water is expensive here, so there goes that. And we just got to the point where our electric bill was coming down from the summer high There goes that.
Any suggestions to make this easier????
