Fleabag

Mr Puddy asked me: Did you use to get fleas on your fur ? After I did turn to be Mr. Flea Bag, Mom wonder how the black cat like you can see the fleas on your fur, My mom saw the fleas on my white fur ( Tummy ), But she can't see it on my black fur, The flea is dark ! or may be good girl like you never get flea : )

Well Mr Puddy, I have never had fleas since I got here. I get some sort of shot every year at the vet which stops the fleas from coming near me. Or something. Teddy had fleas when he arrived, and he had to have a BATH! Then he got de-flead at the vet and hasn't had any since.  Mum and dad keep a close eye on both of us to make sure we don't get fleas.

I'm glad you don't have any fleas. I haven't had fleas either - yet! Mum treats us with stuff regularly. Simba had fleas and things in her earholes when he came to live here, but he was soon sorted out :)xx

We're glad you've never had fleas, Huffle. We haven't either, at least not since we've been with our human (we don't remember if we had them when we were found and taken into the shelter + foster care). We don't think we'd like to have any, either! We're glad Teddy got sorted out quickly when he first came to live with you.

Thank goodness, no fleas for you! Or Teddy. Here in the desert there ARE no fleas, so we've never had to be treated, thank Cod.

Do you have any poisonous spiders or insects? We know you have a lot of nasty snakes there!

We don't use the "f" word around here. Princess had them before we came, she said it was awful. We wanted to ask Huffle where she sleeps and ask fur a pic of her nappin in her bed. xoxo

We are glad you don't get fleas Huffle. We don't either because we have icky stuff put on our necks every month.

I'm glad you do not have any of those rotten fleas! I have never had fleas on account of I am an Indoor kitty only. Lots of fleas live here in south Florida!

We don't have any fleas here either, and thank dogness for that, can you imagine trying to see those fleas in our thick furs? We have to get some goop on our backs every month to ward off those fleas.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

I like today's picture. It looks like you are smiling. Teddy must be locked in a closet.

Fleas aren't good. We're glad you and Teddy don't have any.

Thank goodness you don't have fleas!!! We all get treated every month with something mom gets at the vets office. She said it's worth it because the fleas are bad here along with ticks! Lots of love, Holly, Lilly & Angel

That's great that you don't get fleas, Huffle - even I have had fleas a couple of times, even though I am indoors-only!

Natalie said...

There's an anti-flea shot?? I wonder if they have it here... At any rate, that's great that you haven't had fleas! They are the worst.

I am black and when I was just a tiny boy I hadded the fleas! The Human could see them crawling on the lower part of my tum and my tender parts (where my fur was thinner when I was a kitten). We used Advantage and I never had the fleas again.

That's good to heat that you dont have fleas. Your mom and dad really take care of you.

Squeak had fleas several times -- and that was what made her so sick that her last human just gave her to the SPCA rather than treat them. She doesn't go outside now! Good thing your human takes good care of you.

Me and Dave don't have fleas, either. Mom has found two ticks on Dad this Summer so far, though - we're thinking she should put Frontline on his shoulder blades like she does ours! Ha roo roo roo!

Mr Puddy said...

heh..heh..heh...I forgot, Everyone got no flea because the pawrents look after you all so well, I got flea because my pawrents forgot to put flea treatment for me for one month..Bad Bad pawrents : )...and I had to put up with flea bath in winter which was not fair ! ..But I paid back cause mom had to clean the whole house plus all fabric. But good thing about it, they see my real body and I'm not fat and I don't need to do diet : )

Thanks Hiffle to answer the question : )
xoxo

A way to tell if you have fleas that works for any color cat is to stand on a white piece of paper and ruffle the fur. If the cat has fleas, little dots of dried blood from the bites will drop off onto the paper.
