The cats been vacationing almost 3 weeks at my sons place. She was getting paranoid from the bites and the flea baths. The fleas pretty much skip around my lady and are drawn to me like bees to honey.
I figure it must be a body chemistry and temp thing.
I catch at least a half dozen a night with the soap dish under the salon
table. We keep a little soapy water
in a shop vac and use it regularly. I put rugs down for warmth in the winter but they got bagged early.
Halloween, the cat, has ended up with behavior issues over this. A few months ago she started trying to avoid walking on the floor. She started walking the galley
cabinet to the settee to the top of the sewing machine
and would stretch to reach her food
. 15 years old, she knows the cabinets are off limits. My lady don't allow.
We noticed the fleas a couple of weeks later.
She then quit using the litter box in the forward head
and started living in the cockpit
. I made her a cat door as soon as she came on board so she could roam. Retired mountain cat.
I hope her time away gets her back on track.
Looking for another pretty place to work on the boat.
