    Flea Tablets

    By Tony on 09/22/2016

    I wish I had known they are only good for 24 hours. With that knowledge after I bought them, they did not seem that good of a deal. After an hour or so, my cats started twitching and jumping all over as if the fleas were leaving or dying or biting in anger. After another hour, they were calmed down
