Hulky is having a hard time not feeling rejected by Pumpkin. He keeps saying, "She likes you better already," to which I say, "You need to be more patient and spend more time with her!" If she's on top of her little cat tower, he'll walk right over, slowly, with his hand extended. She runs under the bed. I sit on the far end of the bed, and move over a foot or two every 5 sec or so, as long as she looks calm and isn't staring at me. I don't look at her while I'm moving. I'll make little pss pss pss noises while I'm doing it and talk softly to her. I'll slowly extend my hand after I'm close and she's still calm. She'll sniff my hand and usually start rolling around and rubbing her head on my hand. Then I can actually pet her. I've gone over this with him so many times and he is just too impatient to be consistent with it. It's only been two weeks!
Poor Fae got some gross nodule on the back of her neck where we applied the Advantage. I hope it goes away, otherwise I don't be able to apply another treatment next month. Fleas suck. We need to wash the sheets and vacuum the mattress in there (outside of the bedroom of course). I think I'll look for diatomaceous earth this weekend.
