I am definitely going to try this, we have 4 dogs that have flea alergies and it's not easy to bathe them often.

So you are the cat whisperer. My Raptor (she is a dog)has one black wisker.

LOL, my allergic girl is Shadow. She is solid black with an occasional white hair here and there and one white whisker. I also have Oscar, an orange tabby, who was dumped/left in the neighborhood. He showed up one Sunday afternoon after my Mom's Persian died and moved himself in with us by the following Wednesday and my newest one was left by his feral mother in my backyard when he was 3 weeks old. He is almost 3 months old now. My Mom swore she would never be without a cat and it looks like I won't be either. They seem to find me.

You are a kind person, Katherine. That is your Kitties name? I miss mine. I had two, Crystal-meow, and Butthead.

Well she is totally declawed, but she will bite. Mostly she just tries to run. I did NOT have her declawed. She came to me that way. She was going to be put down, so I adopted her. I didn't know about all her allergies, but I would have taken her anyway.
