Well I gave a water only bath to my new little black kitten with the stubby tail to get rid of the flea dander on him, and while doing so I saw a single flea run across his chest. Considering all the debris on him, one isn't bad. I mean seriously, look at the bath water..
Unfortunately the shelter didn't have anything additional for them. They were given revolution two days ago. The capstar there is the dog size and to dose a kitten they are looking at dust and that isn't something they wanted to do. At this point I can go out and try to find cat capstar or hope the revolution takes care of that last remaining live flea before anything else happens. I'm going with the later and keeping a good eye on them. The last thing I want is The Crew to get fleas again.
While I was there I saw Fedele and Nario out being held. A really nice couple was there who wanted two boy kitties. All the other kitties up for adoption were girls so they had gone outback and brought them out to be seen. They were smitten and ended up adopting them. After all these years I have started having a harder and harder time meeting the people who adopt my kittens because I prefer to imagine the homes they went in instead of knowing the reality. I know all too well that people have different views on how to care for cats and while I personally don't think they are right, I've come to accept the fact that just because they are what I would call ideal doesn't make them wrong or bad cat owners. But I do like to believe they are adopted by good owners and are loved, and that is much much easier if I don't know the particulars.
Fortunately this couple was pretty much all I could hope to ask for in adopters. A nice well established couple, who younger kids but not so young they won't understand the proper treatment of kitties. (Nario is going to LOVE them) She has had several cats who lived to 18 years of age. He wants to build cat trees for the kitties.. (I mean seriously, could it get much better??) Indoor only, was open to the fact that cats are carnivores, going to set them up in one room to help them get settled into the house.. and she promised to send pictures!!
and oddly enough they live in the town my mom works in, so they have met and know her! lol. talk about your small world.
