For whatever reason, this year has been a rough one for the longhaired cats. All the boys and Rhea have been having a lot of large hairballs, and Rhea even had a big wad of hair get stuck being pooped out and require a bath, and she was forming mats as well. I got some hairball lube and gave them all a dose, but I thought Rhea needed to get a haircut and get those mats cleared up.
In the last day I felt some scabs on her shoulders and neck and thought it was likely she had fleas too. When the vets confirmed this she had to get a more complete shavedown, a lion cut.
Sadly for Rhea, she has a bit of reaction to the Revolution dose — it makes her drool like a gusher for quite a few minutes. You can see a couple of the shoulder scabs here at the top of the shoulder.
All the other cats got a dose too later at home. They only dislike it a little.
She’s been a bit reserved this evening mostly because they gave her a bit of sedation and she’s feels more comfy a bit more isolated from the boys than normal.
You can see the zones of her various fur colors right on the skin…white, creme and blue.
The other pictures don’s show up the booties quite as well as real life.
Here she is nodding off as I play a video game. She didn’t mind climbing all the platforms to the topmost one.
