Fleas have been our bat­tle of the week around here. We’ve tried to spray, we’ve tried the sham­poo, and they nev­er seem to die. When you’ve got a white coat­ed beast­ie (like Miss Man­cha) in the house, they are very obvi­ous… It’s a lit­tle hor­ri­fy­ing if you’ve ever watched a sci-fi bug a movie. And I have.
There is a new style of flea col­lar that every­body at the co-op has been rec­om­mend­ing. It’s 60 some dol­lars though, and a bit of a tough pill to swal­low. So I bought one for @meetmancha and it turns out there was a third left over when I was done trim­ming it for her neck. Since I’ve got the leather work­ing sup­plies out any­way, I fig­ured I’d make use of the $20 left over por­tion and make a col­lar for the oth­er beast­ie (Aussie) on site with a bit of scrap and some stock hard­ware.
For some­thing cou­ple togeth­er in about five min­utes I’m pret­ty hap­py with how this turned out! I have no idea if this part even has med­ica­tion in it, but I fig­ured it was worth a try!
