the cat will be ok

I am now a catsitter. I have been for a week. Somehow, my lovely charge got some kind of wicked case of the fleas.

She yowled and scratched against anything that wouldn't fall over for 2 days before I finally got some flea medicine and dosed her. Days later she was still miserable.

It was a bonding experience, really. She would come over to me and whine and writhe around and I would feel great pity. After a week I couldn't stand it and went and got flea shampoo. I wish I had done that right off the bat.

Now she's wet and pissed and I have the scratches to prove it, but I think she's looking a little less...fleabitten.
