About 3 years ago my hubby and I got a gorgeous little Snowshoe kitten. Since we had a dog in the house already and my hubby is very allergic to fleas, we decided to get some fleas drops for her when she was old enough. A couple of weeks later I went to the pet store and got her some Hartz drops. Bad idea I was to find out. We put the drops on her exactly like the directions had said. About 15 minutes later she started screaming. Not meowing loudly, but screaming. I picked her up and her skin was hot where I’d put the drops on. I yelled to my hubby to bring me the Dawn dish soap (I figured since they used it on penguins, it might work on her). I ran to the bathroom and filled the bathtub. The second she hit the water and it washed over her sholders, she started a really pitiful mewing. When I poured (literally poured) the dish soap on her she went limp. I scrubbed her until I was sure there was nothing left on her and then ran more water over her. Finally, I took her out the bath, wrapped her up in a towel, covered her in a blanket (since it was winter) and curled up with her on the couch. I slept with her curled up on my chest the whole night to make sure she was okay. Seeing the pictures on the site makes me so thankful that it didn’t get worse.
Thank you for reading my little story. I hope everyone’s pets are okay.
