My cats are indoor-only cats. But I did have that situation where they picked up fleas that one summer --- I think the front door doesn't fit quite as tightly sealed as I'd like. I put them on the flea treatment (and had the joys of cleaning and cleaning and cleaning until I got rid of the damn fleas) and kept them on it for a very long time (probably over a year), and eventually just stopped going back and buying more, since the vet-prescription stuff is expensive.
Their annual vet visit is coming up again soon --- should I put them back on the flea treatment, considering it is now summer and all? Or just not do anything about it right now? Suggestions, advice?
Also, I am contemplating how to clean my damn fuzzy blankets, the ones the cats love to lie on. I don't feel like running them through the laundry yet again. I may have to vacuum them *and* run them through the laundry though, they are so hairy. Tell me the best way to deal with silly cats and their shedding!
