Lucy here, seems my brother Blaze has a bout of fleas! YUCK! Mama has been super busy with stripping down our beds, then she stripped down her bed and her pillows. Daddy helped mama with our kennels (boy was there a lot of dust bunnies).
Mama went on line and looked up Natural Ways to Kill Fleas and found this link http://www.ehow.com/how_4540114_natural-ways-kill-fleas.html. See my brother has a problem with licking his paws a lot, so mama figured she was dealing with a yeast outbreak. My brother’s paws always get sore for him when he is outside in the puddles and such. So even though mama dries his paws each time we go outside, he would still lick them. So mama put socks on his paws to stop him from licking them. You can read about them here —> https://ramblingpets.wordpress.com/2012/11/05/awe-mama-do-i-hab-to/.
Well mama got to work and took fresh lemons and squeezed 2 tablespoons into a jar, then she said she made the water warm and put them both into a spray bottle and shook it.
Blaze was put into the bathtub and mama sprayed him down, she left the lemon mix on him for a few minutes. While that was happening, she grabbed a pair of tweezers and grabbed those pesky fleas she saw on him. Blaze is such a trooper! He took it all in like a champ! Love you Blaze!
Afterwards, Blaze got a nice rubdown from the towel. His favorite part is running through the house and shaking his butt all over the place *grins*.
Tonight at dinner, mama says we are going to get some raw garlic with oil in our raw food… fleas don’t like garlic either! Muhahahaha!!!
Don’t fleas know that when mama’s in charge, they don’t have a chance?!
