Good morning. Yup, I'm late again, but sleep was not so easy during the night because of the muggies, so I slept in as late s I could this morning. Today is very warm here. The cool nights that we've been enjoying lately have been replaced with temps in the mid 70's. Those temps are great for daytime, but a bit too warm for sleeping during the night.
Pogo has been doing so good lately with no fleas. Oops, spoke too soon. Yesterday I found one on him, so I put him in the sink for a bath. Afterwards, I combed him out and found a dead one. Yuk! The bath towels were then put back in the wash, and today the blankets will all get washed again.
Dwarf Helen has just sprinkled the floors in the main part of the house with Epsom salts, and I'll do mine when I finish this post. I'll sprinkle Pogo's and my furniture too. I just called Cliff and he'll come over in a few hours to vacuum it all up. Technically, it should be down longer, but I don't want to take a chance that Pogo will want to eat any of it.
You can bathe your doggie with Epsom salts too. You mix 8 tablespoons with a gallon of warm water and use this for the bath water. Keep your fur baby in the water for five minutes, rinse and dry off. I would check on Google for the right recipe for bathing kitties. You can also bathe them in Dawn dish detergent. This also will kill the fleas.
Last evening, I took this photo of Pogo with my phone. It's not easy to get a photo of him looking at me because as soon as he sees the phone he hides his face. So, I have to be really quick. He's curled up on a couple of his little blankets on his chair.
I found a photo on Facebook that I borrowed to share with you. This one really got to me. The look on this little doggie's face tells me that he has been abused, and is ever so grateful to the person holding him for being kind and sharing love. And I am ever so grateful that this person came along to save this little doggie.
Hugs, Edna B.
