My correspondent from yesterday writes about Wendyl Nissen’s wish to kill cats with natural flea treatment.

Dear Cam,

Further to my email yesterday I noticed that Wendyl has now changed her chocolate pudding in her Herald column so instead of 2 cups of sugar, it only has 1.5 cups… could be mere coincidence of course since it was pointed out yesterday. ? But it was definitely two cups originally as I remember double checking all my calculations.

Anyway… I have come across yet another gem of wisdom from the Green Goddess which I thought you would also appreciate. ? Unfortunately the family cat won’t appreciate her advice while its being poisoned to death by her “all-natural treatment?

“Summer is here and so are the fleas. You can reduce the incidence of fleas on your cats by combing them daily with a flea comb and feeding them my anit-flea powder. I believe that if you combine these two all-natural treatments you will greatly reduce the chance of fleas taking hold and you won?t need to pour chemicals on your pets.” ?? Read more »

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Malagasy prison authorities have?launched a campaign against rodents?in Antanimora prison in the capital, Antananarivo, where 3,000 inmates are behind bars.

Christoph Vogt, head of the ICRC delegation in Madagascar, said: “The chronic overcrowding and the unhygienic conditions in prisons can bring on new cases of the disease. That’s dangerous not only for the inmates but also for the population in general.”? Read more »
