We interrupt this blog post with the followin' public service announcement.
Hey Peepers! Come over here, would ya? There's somethin' I need you to see. That. You need to see that. *points paw* THAT!
*gives head a shake*
I said, THAT! What are you, Peepers, BLIND?
Oh, sorry there peep. I was pointin' at the wrong thing. That there speck is nothin' but a speck of dust.
Okay, this... *points paw again* ...is what I actually wanted you to see. See that? See that there speck?
Well that there speck is a flea.
I know, I know... I know what you're thinkin'. You're thinkin' that I, Seville the Cat, have fleas.
I, Seville the Cat, do not get fleas.
But accordin' to the Nova Scotia Government's website, late summer - aka August and September - is peak season for fleas.
Bet you didn't know our provincial government has info 'bout fleas on-line, did ya. But they do!
So for all you cats out there who, unlike me, DO get fleas, it's time for you to have "the talk"with your peeps. Yup, it's time to be talkin' to your peeps 'bout fleas; and makin' sure necessary precautions are taken.
You don't wanna be bringin' those pesky critters into the house, you see.
Personally, I highly recommend one of those flea combs. The use of a flea comb can provide you and your peeps with endless quality bonding time.
Plus, it feels kinda good.
EVEN THOUGH I, MYSELF, DON'T GET FLEAS.
But I've been TOLD how good those combs can feel, you see.
Okay, FINE. I've been known to let the peeps use one on me. Just for fun, mind you. JUST FOR FUN!
'Cause remember, I, Seville the Cat, DON'T GET FLEAS.
I have, however, been dabbed on the back of the neck.
You know, with stuff from the vet.
Peepers says it's "MANCAT COLOGNE," but I have my doubts. Doesn't smell like the colognes I've seen advertised on TV.
Oh so I've been told.
By a friend.
Remember to mask up, too.
