I think it was because I started putting it on her when she was between 2-3 months old and after the first time, she just tolerated it. We are having a horrible flea invasion, due to prairie dogs and an over abundance of rabbits, so I can't let her off the front deck. This is the first time in years that fleas have done this. The prairie dogs carry plague, and there is a cat in Cheyenne that has contracted it, so I'm very careful with Callie. She doesn't really like to walk with it on, but I can keep her by me and give her a bit of freedom. She really just wants to roll in the dirt!
