Footprints Of Love


The front porch
It was pouring buckets of rain when I got up this morning.  Weather like this makes me wonder: should I run out now with food for Patty O'Malley and Sweetie, as I do most every day...or wait, to see if the rain slows or stops in a little while?  Today, I decided to pour kibble out, and run it to the backyard for them.  However, Patty was already on the front porch, and he was soaked*!  

Once I was finished with my food delivery, the resulting foot- and paw-prints on the porch amused me. The Hubby was out in the rain too, since it's trash-pickup day.


*I've noticed that Patty is scratching a bit, so it's time for a flea and tick preventative treatment.  I really dislike putting chemicals on him, however any holistic remedy that I've tried has been ineffective. Yesterday, I was ready to squeeze the little vial of DIE-BUG-DIE stuff on him, but somehow got distracted and did not do it.  Glad that I didn't, because it would have all washed off of him in the morning rain!  Why was he out in the rain, anyhow?  My silly Patty!

Selfie taken on Saturday...when it was dry!

  8. Funny how something as simple as footprints can be so amusing. I'm not a big fan of chemicals either, but flea control a few time a year is the lesser of two evils. I'm a fan of the older drugs like Advantage. Raven has had adverse reactions to two of the newer flea controls (1 topical, 1 oral). And I'm not a fan of the new 6-month pills or shots.

  9. I just ran across an article by Dr. Plotnick (one of my favorite cat vet bloggers) about flea control. I thought you might be interested. http://catexpert.blogspot.com/2017/04/fleas-and-flea-control-in-cats.html
