Same thing, Mary. And yes, Chris, it does indeed work. A lot of products promise a flea-free summer, but Advantage really delivers. I don't know the product Mary uses. (Rita, one of my cats does the "torture" act too when I apply the stuff; the other two barely notice.)
Chris, some of us on GEnie got together and produced an anthology of mystery stories that shared the same fictional setting; "The Reluctant Op" was one of those stories. But we couldn't sell the anthology. The editors we approached were interested, but editors no longer decide what gets published; Sales Departments do. We could never get past Sales.
