A foundling named "Fleamarket"

I shot this video this morning…

Kevin and I decided a long time ago that we didn’t want anymore inside pets, but we’d love to make sure he’s got a comfortable, safe place to eat and sleep on our back porch.

I’m calling him “Fleamarket” because he is just that! He’s covered in the things. :-( I hope I can get most of them off of him today. I hate to see him suffering.

Speaking of pesky bugs, I mowed the yard after I shot that video this morning and I must have been standing on a fire ant nest for a bit too long. All of a sudden I felt stinging sensations and looked down to find that my feet and ankles were under attack!

The rest of my day will be spent sitting in my office doing consultations. No biting insects in here. Whew! :-)

Hope you’re having a wonderful “bite-free” weekend!

Fleamarket finally feasts!

    The kitten’s name made me smile. One of our cats was named Flea Bitten Kitten” by my son, and for the same reason. Of course that got shortened to “Flea,” and all these years later.Flea he is. (After that I declared that only I shall name any future pets!)
