Miss Kitty kicked off the Fleaquinox with about 25 fleas. I combed her for a couple of days and the count has dropped to nearly zero. I wonder about the flea-carry capacity of a fluffy cat. Am I getting 98% of them? 70%? 10%. Unknown but the hit count really drops over a day.
Last night she spent the night out and was missing this morning. That means she is locked in the neighbors garage so I went over and extracted her. Now she's rolled up in a cardboard box she favors sleeping it off.
Something killed one of the neighbors numerous cats. I don't trust folks descriptions of the scene enough to try and figure out what killed her. I have heard Barred Owls on the block every evening this week at dusk.
Update: Hardly a SINGLE flea- most days none, on the cat since the Fleaquinox. Maybe I got them all.
