THINGS CEIBA NO LIKE:
2) FOOD THAT IS NOT WAFFLES
3) CHILDREN WHO NO SHARE WAFFLES
4) WHEN CAT STEALS BEST SUNBEAM SPOT
5) FLEAS AND TICKS
Things Max is not particularly a fan of:
1) Online meme-y catspeak that really demeans us all, if you think about it
2) Not being fed right this second
3) Or this second
4) Dog getting up in his face while he’s just trying to chill in a sunbeam
5) Fleas and ticks
I remain neutral on the great sunbeam turf war but at least I’ve got them thoroughly covered on number 5, thanks to Adams™ Flea & Tick Control Products.
Oh yeah. IT’S ON.
While I can’t think of ANYTHING that ISN’T terrible about a flea infestation, I will say the WORST part is the re-infestation, right when you think you’ve got the situation under control. Or noticing the OTHER pet, who was just fine the first million times you checked, suddenly scratching like crazy. COME ON.
We’ve been really pretty fortunate that our pets have stayed mostly pest-free, but I like to think it’s because we’re not idiots about it. (Unlike…everything else in my adult life.) I check them frequently, shampoo Ceiba regularly, and we treat our backyard, where both pets like to chill. Kill the suckers before they start getting all bite-y.
Admittedly, though, sometimes I go too long without thinking about it, only to be jolted back to reality when one of my neighbors reports finding a tick on their dog or child, or I notice a dog whose butt Ceiba regularly sniffs scratching himself. Eeeeeeep.
The makers of Adams™ products graciously provided me with all the products above, and even better, offer free flea & tick outbreak alerts that you can sign up online for. Because of this helpful service I am willing to forgive them for the horrifying list of bug-related facts that they also sent to me, including the one that just 10 female fleas can lay 15,000 eggs in 30 days. Oh my freaking God, I AM SO ITCHY NOW.
But my pets, thankfully, are not.
(Ceiba, post-treatment with the Adams™ for Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On® via that handy-dandy Smart Shield® applicator, and who as per usual has no idea what just happened to her or what is going on, but did someone say waffles?)
Please note that while the Adams™ Yard & Garden spray kills and repels fleas, ticks, mosquitoes AND ants, it has proven useless against one other garden pest:
I SEE YOU THERE, TIRE. NOBODY WANTS TO BUY YOU. NOBODY LOVES YOU. GO AWAAAAYYYYYY.
