I just gave my kitten her first collar.
A flea collar, as I've caught two of the little orange blighters wandering around lately. She doesn't like it much. At first there was a bell on it, which would drive me crazy never mind her. And which she seemed to (slightly comedically it must be said) think that she could escape the sound of by running away from it. But off with the bell. She's scratching at it quite a bit. A gave her a couple of new favourite toys (she LOVES Ikea finger puppets and wrestles with them for hours at a time).
Hmmm. She'll get used to it I guess.
Also, she seems to have developed a cluster of slightly gross little scabs on the back of her head. Anyone know if this is flea related? Just noticed them last night. Taking out pet insurance today and booking her in at the vet, anyway.
