In my personal opinion is fleas, they are annoying bity things that don’t seem to die and for some reason our normal flea routine hasn’t worked, I know this because I found fleas on all of the animals at some point over the last 3 or 4 months.
I have done near enough everything to the pets and the flat to try and get rid of them, bar burning down the flat and tbh that was pretty tempting. The pets normally have 2-3 weeks of nothing on them and then just as I am starting to relax, I find one of the little buggers
So Tuesday was spent in a last desperate attempt to get rid of them. This started out with doing the bedrooms with flea bombs, followed by both cats and the dog having a bath, this was not fun for any of us.
Then onto getting rid of any of the fleas I had missed on the pets, by combing and a flea tablet each.
By the time this was done and none of the animals were talking to me, the flea bombs had finished in the bedroom, hoovering and an extra flea room spray is put all over the room, then airing by having the windows open.
In the meantime, the dog is not letting me stroke him and the cats are eying me up on how to kill me in my sleep.
Another hoover in the bedrooms, by the way, this involves, hoovering emptying the hoovering into a bag and then running it downstairs, incase there are any live fleas left. Comb the animals again
Then for the next big job, moving everything out the lounge, where we have been camped, so food, toys etc into the bedroom, where we will all sit, till the lounge is done, repeat with the hoovering and the flea spray. Air the room, then hoover again.
While all of this is happening, making sure anything that can fit in the washing machine is going on as well and wondering if it is just easier to burn down the flat and let someone else deal with the pets. This all has to be done in the 6 hours while Monkey is at school, because he can’t stay in one room
Of course, as I am doing all this, I then get an email that nits are going about Monkey’s school. So that is the humans that need doing as well. At least the humans don’t bite me when they have a bath.
