uchi.

as told in a chat to jason:

Jason:  how's your kitty?
 me:  he's sleeping and purring on my lap now. damp.
he's been having flea issues.
so i had this bottle of old flea stuff, and it said to wet the cat with it.. and i just did it around his ruff neck
and then the fleas were dying and running around and i was having fun killing them
then i left but then uchi started meowing really strangely
like more of a moan.
and when i looked at him he was foaming.
so i completely freaked out. and then just grabbed him and put him under the faucet.
showering uchi by itself is a traumatic experience.. and the only other time as an adult i've showered him andy had helped.
so it was just me, and he kept growling and for a tiny cat he has lots of power. i didn't get scratched. but at one point he had his mouth on me.
but only bit a little.
stupid flea product. it was supposed to be all natural, from Bark and Purr.

Our cats throw up when we put flea stuff on them.
Tuesday just runs around in confusion.

I totally read that as "the only other time as an adult i've showered andy had helped."

One of my old cats would foam if he didn't like the taste of something. Maybe that's all it was. He'd also get car sick from anxiety. When I moved cross-country, he was always fine everyday, but the first, so I think it was more emotions than actually motion sickness.

Hopefully Uchi's totally fine now.

We had that issue when Grey moved up with Jody. Took a lot of Borax all over the house to help kill the fleas and eggs, and Frontline on the kitties themselves for a few months while the cleaning/Borax got rid of the problem.
