Buddha used to perch on the back of my rocking recliner.. sometimes when I sat down she would tumble off the back, often onto my head with paws scrabbling.
So I sprinkled the back of the recliner with some highly-scented herbal flea repellent (she HATES having it put on her). It may not be the most effective method of repelling fleas but it repelled Buddha very well....especially when she found this towel Oscar carefully folded for his own use.
Three days later, it's still her favorite spot in the house.
