More Meds, More Payback #Caturday

Sweetie Pie Turner here, MomGoth’s mom’s cat.

Did you ever have a lergy? I got one. I’ve been scratching and scratching until I blooded myself, and MomGoth took me to my vet. He said the problem was a lergy, and he gave MomGoth some medicine for me.

Meanwhile, On The Flea-War Front

MomGoth set up a flea trap according to directions sent her a few years ago by her friends and fellow writers, Sarah Glenn and Gwen Mayo.

This is a high-intensity lamp, but MomGoth has used an unshaded nightlight plugged into a low-set wall plug. The fleas hop into the warm water and can’t get out. It works!

Cooperating with the weaponry.

As for the payback, MomGoth lost her keys and was about to go coo-coo looking for them. She looked at her house, our house, the walk between the houses, and was almost reduced to emptying her purse when she realized what had happened.

I would have told her, if she hadn’t found them. Eventually.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Do you a lergy? More than one?

  1. I am like a walking lergy, which isn’t as bad as it sounds, because it’s not like I’ve got lergy to air or milk or soy or any of the hard ones.
    I’ve done that flea trick with the lamp and it does work, but not fast enough for me. I tried salting the carpet too — pretty sure they leapt onto the furniture. Eventually I took up the basement carpet and voila, no more fleas. I wish you continued success, they are SO annoying! Apparently my dog is the control unit in the house. The vet says as long as the dog is treated, the cats don’t have to be, so that’s nice. Ironically, it is $13 cheaper to treat one dog than three cats every month.
