Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Okay, as some of y'all know, I am an indoor cat, but I got out a couple of weeks ago and was gone all night. When I came home, I had some flea bites on my head. (The bites are really obvious because my fur is very short and dark, and I get a little bald spot at each bite.) Mom thought that was weird, because she'd given me a Revolution treatment less than 3 weeks before, but the bites healed and my little bald patches started to grow hair again. She thought that maybe, with the Revolution, fleas would bite once and then fall off or something??? :?
Now I have MORE bites on my head! I have NOT been outside again! Mom has not found any fleas or flea dirt, but I definitely have a fresh crop of bites. They are mostly around my ears. I have a bald spot the size of a dime by my right ear!
Mom gave me a dose of Advantage yesterday. She is hoping she will not see any more bites. In the meantime, she is calling me Little Constellation Head because of the little white bald spots on my midnight-black head! :r
WHY did the fleas bite me even though I'd had an anti-flea treatment? And what treatment -- Advantage, Revolution, Frontline -- do you prefer?
