I am pet-sitting a cat for a few days who likes to go out in his yard in his harness and leash. He has a long tie-out lead out there, so I hook him up and he enjoys himself in the yard for about 10 minutes, while I sit on the edge of the porch keeping an eye on him and reading. Well, turns out there are lots of mosquitos around, making a most pleasant outing ...much less pleasant.
So, may I ask for suggestions on good mosquito repellents. What can I put on myself that will keep them away?
And if they do succeed in nipping me, what is a good anti-itch ointment or cream or whatever?
Thanks VERY much!
I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
