I remember when my kitties loved and trusted me.

But last night and tonight were flea meds nights. It would have been only one night but Mia is psychic and I can't get a hold of her. Well, I've gotten ahold of her 3 times but she's squirmed away and run each time. Only Fay has gotten her meds but she hasn't forgiven me yet despite the treats.

Tonight I sleep alone.

Whoa. No longer funny. Mia is terrified of me and screaming away from a distance.

Time to break out the treats?

Whenever I have to medicate Shasta, who also seems to be psychic, I lure her into the bathroom where she cannot hide or escape. However ... she catches on to my 'game' too well and I still wind up having to ambush-medicate when I catch her resting and unawares.

She never falls for the treats. She can read my mind, or my body language.

I was just able to touch her for a min when I caught her asleep but I've lost her trust. She was affetioate enough when I briught her home but was always careful about some things. It was 9 months before she was comfortable with my face close to hers and a yera before she wouldn't run from me if I walked up to her at full height.

She managed to avoid the meds. Her step sister Fay got her meds then was skittish for a bit but couldn't resist the treats and now she's enjoying having me to herself for a bit. Mia's Siamese cries are pitiful. She was my little love bug and I could use that now. The place I work is falling apart and there are no jobs out there. The furkids may lose their kitty heaven house and now little miss sweetie won't come near me. Not a fun time.

Monty HATES me doing this. I use Frontline and the smell drives him crazy. I don't even have to open the little plastic container..he can smell right through it.

He goes nuts when I have put it on, squinting his eyes and crying, I feel so bad doing it.

I'm sorry to hear your work is doing so badly. I have been through that myself and was lucky to have landed on my feet. It would sure be nice for you to have both of your kitties loving you up at a time like this.

I use Frontline on Fay and that stinks, Mia gets Revolution because it dries faster. That's becasue Fay ends up grooming Mia a lot.

I made a tiny bit of progress after that 4:30 AM post. Mia finally curled up with me in bed .She even did her "You're not going anywhere" routine as I went thru the snooze alarm process. She sat on my chest and wouldn't get off. But once out of bed she wouldn't come near me.

I'll try her meds again this weekend. After that she'll probably never trust me again but it's warming up here and teh fleas and tics will be out in force.

If I hadn't just run my car into a curb and popped a tire I'd leave work right now before I explode. I work for the worst scum in the world. They got caught stealing from old people but managed to get the evidence suppressed. When Charlie Crist was AG of Florida he was looking for an excuse to nail them after that. I work in IT but the sleeze permeates the company.

The kitties are gonna sense how enraged I am at what just went on
