Walter is extra attentive around the first of the month. It’s as if he knows it’s time for his monthly dose of Revolution. Revolution is especially important for outside cats, because it protects them against fleas, heartworms, roundworms, hookworms, and ear mites. All these parasites can make an outdoor kitty’s life miserable. Most cats aren’t wild about me applying this chemical to the back of their necks, but Walter welcomes it. He stands there purring and talking to me while I apply it for him.
Since Zelda won’t let me near enough to touch her, I talked to Dr. Val about what we could do for Zelda. We decided to try Comfortis. I crumble it in Zelda’s wet food and mix it in. Last month, she picked it out, but I added another can of food and mixed it in, and she ate it. This month, it’s all gone in one try. It doesn’t provide protection as comprehensive as Revolution, but it meets my key concern for Zelda’s comfort and health.
