Hello, Furriends,
  Today, I am letting Mom take over the blog, as she has exciting news to spread about a new, safe way to keep nasty fleas and ticks away from all us furries. 

Signed, Jigsaw Puzzle, Esq.

Well, hello, everyone!

   I don't know if any of you know of Claudia Tietze from Face Book.  She is the owner of Tiny Timmy, a kitty who has suffered severe neurological damage from toxic flea and tick products.
After Claudia rescued him, she set out to find a much safer way to control and get rid of these pests.  But, I'll let the press release tell the story:

Dirty Flea Soap is Kicking Pet Pesticides Off the Shelves

By Mandy Louise on Monday, April 21, 2014 at 11:02am
In 2008, the EPA reported that over 40 000 pet dogs and cats were injured or killed by flea and tick spot-on products. According to some veterinarians, these products contain toxic pesticides and are simply not safe for animals or people.  A small kitten, named Tiny Timmy, suffered permanent neurological damage from applications of an over-the-counter flea treatment, that left him “wobbly” and uncoordinated. His adoptive mom pledged to find a safe solution that would keep pets clean and healthy. The solution, launching this week via IndieGoGo, is Tiny Timmy’s Dirty Flea Soap!

Dirty Flea Soap is the product of intense research to discover what kinds of things could trigger not only immediate reactions in cats and dogs, but long term health issues as well. Did you know that essential oils, used every day in products for humans, can cause serious reactions in your pets? Neither did Tiny Timmy’s mom, until she took on this challenge. Together with the amazing soapmakers at Oregon Rain Soap, she found the perfect blend of safe ingredients for cats and dogs. With thick foaming action, Dirty Flea Soap fills the tiny breathing holes of the fleas on your pet and suffocates them on the spot - no pesticides needed!

The IndieGoGo campaign will last from April 21 to May 12.  Please contact Karma Lynn Hurworth at twonthesaddle@yahoo.com, or Donna Savory at dsavory@mrcpclaw.com for more information, or visit the IndieGoGo page http://www.indiegogo.com/at/DiryFleaSoap
or DirtyFlea.com.

I know everyone who loves their dear furry friends will be delighted to find this product, and give the pass-by to the toxins sold in stores and even by your veterinarian.  Thanks for stopping by to learn about this, and please, pass the word along!

Thank you for sharing. Over the counter flea shampoos are really scary.

Thanks for posting this! It rocks and you rock! Until better alternatives are available, bad products will stay on the shelves. Please support Tiny Timmy and his Dirty Flea Soap project.
