Not really a project Im "proud" of per say, given my time limit and its going to be buried at my lake house on sunday, I didn't really have time to do glue ups and joinery. Woods are 5/4 oak and 5/4 maple with some light curl/flame.
Now the meat and potatoes... My little kitty was 7 years old, very healthy and sprightly; with no prior health issues what so ever. Very loving and I miss him dearly. I've heard about "flea treatments" killing animals, but it was always more of a "this must be an exaggeration" or "the animals had to be unhealthy".
My wife is a foster care psychologist and is around a lot of dirty people and children frequently. (Not trying to be crass, this is just the nature of the beast). One of the children she worked with had a heinous flea infestation, and unfortunately she brought it home. We have a 200 pound (literally) great dane, and 2 wonderful kitties. Bruce (great dane) wound up getting tons of fleas, and my wife had never dealt with fleas before, so she went to the store and bought some Hartz liquid flea treatment. She applied it to him I guess, and within 3 days, eddie wound up dying in my arms. I mean what I say, he was 100% fine the night before he passed. When I woke up the next day, he was super lethargic and was chilly, so I made him a bed in front of an air vent. I went about my business, and a couple hours later he was still laying there. Hes normally on my lap all day, every day. I picked him up and he was quite limp, so I placed him on a comfortable blanket on our spare bed and went and got him wet food. Came back, and opened his food and he wouldnt eat. I had NO IDEA what was going on and started panicking a little. I texted a friend who asked if I had done any flea treatments in the house, and I reluctantly had to say yes. She then showed me all the hartz crap and my heart sunk. In the time it took me to schedule him an emergency trip, he wound up having a seizure and passing away in about 20 minutes. I cant believe how quickly he passed, and I am so angry that this crap is allowed to be on the market. So, long story short -> DO NOT USE HARTZ PRODUCTS.
RIP Eddie :(
