Amanda,

Does your cat have a history of flea problems? 

There is an oral anti-flea product called Program/lufenuron.  It may not be quite as effective for a cat with flea allergies, etc.  but it works fine for my cats.  The topical products all gave the cats horrible dandruff so I switched to Program (it is also a cheaper product at my vets, at least).

Poll: favorite cat litter?

I recently switched Arm and Hammer types (from Super Scooper to multi cat) and it was ABSOLUTE DISASTER.  I am NEVER buying the multi cat kind again!

I currently have two horses, two dogs, three goats and two cats in the barn. I have had as many as sixteen cats but they keep running off to search for romance or get killed by coyotes or foxes. The two left are Pumpkin and Miss Kitty.. Miss Kitty is pregnant so I should have more "mousers" this summer.

The goats are Gilbert Gandolfini, a Swiss Taggenberg, Pedro Cruz, a nubian goat, and Bambi Bensinger, a miniature-mix who is crippled. My neighbors gave her to me. She got frost bite when she was born and lost parts of her rear legs. She gets along fine ,is very fast, but just slants a bit!

My dogs are K.D. Fang a tiger striped brindled hound mix who is old and deaf,but still very active, and Blue my Australian Cattle dog.

The horses are Pris (Jays Red Snip) and her son, L.B. (Tardys Rey Jay). I've had Pris since she was four. She is nineteen now. L.B. is five. They are both Foundation registered American Quarter Horses ( the horse of the American cowboy) which means they have very old bloodlines with less than 20% Thoroughbred ancestry.

I keep thinking about raising chickens, but not too sure I want to go there.

I hear you about the Chickens!
My Step Mom  wants to get them so my daughter will know what it's like to collect eggs!
I told she can do that at the Piggly Wiggly for a lot less trouble!LOL
She didn't think it was funny!
We have 14 cats that hang out around the barn, the shop and the house.
Only 3 of them are named.  I only know Sissy I forgetthe other two.
We have 6 dogs- Briar, Jody, Rody, Patty, Terri and Lobo
The horses we have are all rescues: Dancer, Trio, Ellie, Moriah and Ginger. We just lost two this winter Donna and Gambler.
Donna had a stroke and Gambler just faded away after Donna passed.
I love the farm. Wish I could live there full time.

There's a hairball epidemic at my house!!

Ewwwww....I always hated those little surprises!!!

When I had a cat, I used a treatment that was sort of an ointment in a tube. I got it at Petco, but I don't know the name. You put in on the cat's paws and he/she licks it off.  

I think my next kitty will be a Sphynx cat!  :P ;D
