Today I got to thinking about fleas, and wondered if my barn cats had them; cats are notorious flea magnets. I'm not really sure what people do for fleas on cats, but I went out and checked them. I was pleasantly surprised to find no evidence of fleas on Mama Kitty or her babies. They all have white bellies, so fleas (or their leavings) would show up if they were there.
I'm amazed! I wonder what keeps them flea free.
The kittens are starting to act like they're glad to see me when I hover over their nest now.
It takes a cat of a certain disposition to work its way into my heart, but Mama Kitty has managed to do it. She isn't pushy. She stays away from the house. If I want to pet her, she allows it, but she doesn't insist.
Here's to Mama Kitty. May she have a long, good life.
Oh, here's something: Don't let anybody tell you that Obama is terrible because he took the red, white, and blue colors out of the Oval Office. Only one President used red, white, and blue in the color scheme of the oval office, and that was Bill Clinton, who had a rug in those colors on the floor.
|George W. Bush|
|Bill Clinton (that rug is hideous)|
|George H.W. Bush|
I'm not a huge fan of President Obama, but I don't really enjoy seeing lies circulated about him.
