FBG – Journal (Day 4)

Day Four – More bites on us, cats still scratching………avoiding floor. More research…..What kills fleas?????? Citrus, Salt, Garlic, Brewer’s Yeast or Flea powder what to do…..I couldn’t find animal safe flea powder at pet retailer near me. Cats won’t touch food with garlic and only Brewer’s yeast at pet retailer was for dogs. Couldn’t find Brewer’s yeast tablets small enough to give cats at Grocery store either. Okay, guess that leaves going natural, got Air fresheners , Salt , Vinegar and Lemon Juice. Okay, Citrus Boil recipe requires 2 Oranges, 3 Lemons and a Lime, will also need spray bottle.
Mixed Vinegar, Lemon Juice and water together and scrubbed tile floors in Kitchen and Bathroom.
Vacuumed all carpets again. Now to make Citrus repellent spray…..
Slice fruits and boil in water for about an hour, leave in water overnight. Strain fruit from water, I did not squeeze fruit because I planned to slice again, and lemon juice and boil a second batch. Put strained water into spray bottle, this can be used on people, furniture and pets to repel the fleas. I treated my entire carpeted area and furniture, if you wet your hands you can treat your pets chin, cheeks, and the top of the head, I then use the spray to soak my cats fur and rubbed it into their skin. This gave them some relief from scratching and will soothe their skin.
