~ Camouflage ~

I was trying to find my precious little kitty the other day...I finally found her secret hiding place... Now I know where to look when she's had enough hugs and sugars and tries to escape my clutches!


I am just getting ready to sit down tomorrow and start cutting out Santas!! Never mind it has been something that I have said I would do every day this week!!...I had to have the Orkin man come today and do a heavy duty flea spray over the entire that I can go safely to the attic to sew!!

We have three indoor cats that never go outside...yet, every year we are bombarded with fleas and they get out of control before Orkin can get here...This is a very buggy state, I have found out. My mama lives in VA and has indoor and outdoor cats. While there, I didn't see one of them scratch a flea!! ...I come home and mine are scratching in unison, all the time...At least now, my kitties can have a break...and I can go upstairs without being attacked...Orkin is great!!

Take Care,

Yuk~ I felt so buggy!!giggles~ so Now it is Revolution~ I swear by it~ so far no fleas, no orkin man~ just hope it continues to work!!!

What a cute hiding spot...Sweet kitty. Arghh...fleas. Thankfully, I haven't had that issue for many, many, years. Only had to deal with it twice - once when in college, we adopted a kitty from a shelter - and yup, she brought some other houseguests. The other time I was asked to house sit someone's Yorkie - he, too, came with some uninvited guests - and man, I still itch thinking about it!! Good luck! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

The fleas here in Georgia are terrible too. My dogs have to have baths once a week for the fleas.

Hi Tina, What a fun picture! It really made me smile...I love cats and all the little quirky things they do. I also have a cat that stays indoors. The vet told me that the fleas jump up on us and we carry them indoors...and in turn our little kittys sometimes get fleas. I agree with Teresa, I use Revolution once a month on my cat ($13) and this helps protect against those nasty little pests.
Have fun making santas.
