Rescue...

Yesterday I went to look at one of two kittens.

almost identical,(one has green eyes and the other has blue eyes plus some black hairs down back) the first thing i noticed were the FLEAS.
she had apparently flea wash and regularly combed them.

to that i say BULL.

these very small 8-9 week old kittens were so riddled i took them to lps and hydro bathed with JUST the flea rinse, then brought them home and spent 2 almost 3 hrs picking the fleas off (and killing them). I couldnt leave them there.

so without further ado i give you

Jekyll (blue eyes) & Hyde (green eyes)

Jek's:


Hyde:

Female Bettas:Gaia,Bubbles,Tabitha, Rani, Kelsey, 4 unnamed Male Bettas:Oscar, Spyro, Cookie Monster, Kermit The Frog, Grover II, Alvin, Archillies, Moostash
Snails: Yoshi,Peach,Lugi,Mario
Others:Quismodo, Esmerelda, Lavern, Banch(<Guppies) 2 unnamed bristle noses, 2 unnamed reticulate "yoyo" loaches
Furbabies: Kobi & Beau

Awwww... they are so sweet. I'll bet they feel much better now that those nasty fleas are gone.

Congrats. on your two new besties.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Wow, quite a full house there! Lots of fish for those two rascals to watch :)
They're adorable, rescue cats are the best. I think Capstar is safe for kittens and will kill any living fleas ON them within 24 hours. Then, I would go with kitten Revolution for 6 months to make sure any eggs haven't been laid in your home and to de-worm them as well. :)
