How Your Cat Can Get Fleas
- Fleas like to hide in dark places outside. They can jump very high and can hop onto anything that walks by, such as a dog, cat or even you. You may unknowingly bring fleas into your house. Fleas can also make their way inside your house through an open window or crack in the door.
- Since cats like to groom themselves, you may not notice the fleas on your cat because she may have ingested them.
- The fleas can spread fast, so it is important to kill them as quickly as you can.
How Fleas Impact Your Cat
- Fleas can deplete your cat’s blood supply and this can be especially dangerous in young kittens.
- As the flea feeds on the blood, the process creates a systemic reaction that can cause itching.
- Fleas can also cause tapeworm.
