Here's your chance to tell the world.So I had to think long and hard on this from the comfort of my hidey spot coz mom's flakiness just seems normal now, we is so used to it. Blonde moments, senior moments, she has them all. But suddenly I rememmered the flakiest thing efur wot she did and I went digging in the pooter hoping the pikshures woz still where I had buried them back in 2008...

So when mom woz doing the rescue group, the animal control officer called her one nite asking fur help coz he woz raiding a hoarder's house. Mom went there and helped get 112 animals out of this house and into boarding and to rescue groups. She brought 2 kittehs home with her to foster - the one with one eye and the one with one ear. You can read their story HERE.

So you say WAH? That's not FLAKY! I beg your pawdon, butttttt, these kittehs WERE flaky! Fur real. They had RINGWORM! Their furs falled out and their skin woz flaky from the ringworm. That do be common in a hoarding situashun where cooties get passed around like wildfire. So mom had to dip them once a week fur 8 weeks in lime sulfur dip. If'n you has nefur smelled lime sulfur afore, it be like rotten eggs a gabillion times worser. Even us dogs consider it gross and stinky so you know it has to be rilly bad.
So it woz winter time and mom and her furrend Sue decided to do it in the attic. They buyed a wash tub at Home Depot and put a bucket unner the drain hole to catch the stinky dip wot did not stay ON the kitteh (and there woz lots of that). They opened the attic window and put a fan in it blowing outside to suck the stink out. At least that woz the plan. Then they put the kitteh in the wash tub and poured the lime sulfur dip ofur the kitteh and sponged it in until the kitteh woz soaking wet and ORANGE. Let me tell you, kittehs DO NOT like this. Anyways, mom and Sue did not want to get lime sulfur all ofur themselves and make themselves orange and stinky so Sue brought Hazmat suits in size XXL fur them to wear. Now who be the bigger flake, I ask?
Becoz the lime sulfur stinked up the house anyways, fur the next 7 weeks, once a week, mom and Sue would crank up the space heater in the garage, put the kittehs in carriers and take them out there. The neybors would see mom and Sue suited up as above walking across the yard and disappearing into the garage carrying kitteh carriers (complete with howling kittehs). They would shut the garage door and all you could hear woz mom and Sue giggling and kittehs yowling and sniff the stench of rotten eggs coming from the garage. So furrends, there you has it, my peep, the flake.
