I was reading an article about a cat hoarder (these seem to happen about once every few months in this area) from the newspaper of record where I grew up, and I was amused at the sad lack of editorial oversight:
Shelter workers and volunteers spent much of Wednesday afternoon vaccinating and bathing the cats, as well as applying flee vaccine.
One of the best flee-removal treatments, Calgiano said, was Dawn soap.
â€œIt kills fleas on contact,â€ she said.
I was completely unaware there was a flee vaccine on the market now. Amazing what the animal health divisions of pharmaceutical companies are coming out with these days. The big problem with cats is that some of them just get the wanderlust, and then one day you never see them again. No parent will ever have to explain to teary-eyed little Mary why Rufus the cat wandered off. We truly live in miraculous times.
But all snark aside, I know the business is tough these days, but what I think boggles the mind is they got it right on the first and fourth try.
