This means war
So I have been waging a war against fleas for the better part of this summer. First it started with Bow getting them, then the kitty, and then our house. :( After a fleeting attempt at just putting Frontline on the animals it only caused the fleas to become agitated and declare war on me. So, I decided to fight back and doused our carpets with a spray that was supposed to kill them....well, we got back from the campout and let me just say that if Alex stood still for any length of time on the carpet he had about 5 fleas in his leg hair. Yeah.....didn't work. So, the next day (after a cozy night on the twin bed in our spare bedroom because our room was taken over by tiny pests) I bought a fogger to treat the whole house. The jury is still out on this treatment, but it definitely seemed to work better than the spray because Bow hasn't been itching as much. I still found a few fleas on him and the kitty, though, and my last ditch effort will be to just throw out the area rug in our living room. Here are some pretty entertaining pictures of the kitty enjoying her flea bath.
Oh, and on a completely different note, I came home from work yesterday to find a hearfelt letter from my loving husband with a gift certificate for a day spa! For no particular reason, just to say that he loved me and appreciates all that I do! I was blown away, and I'll admit I got a little misty-eyed :) So, now I'm off to run some errands and push on in the raging battle of the fleas.
