Flea problems, we wish we never had them. Sometimes we can control the issue, especially if our cat is an “indoor cat”, but even then our lovely felines are still at risk. Of course outdoor cats run a much greater risk of picking up these pesky pains, but what are we going to do stop our cats from doing the things they love? All it takes is one flea to start a whole ‘lotta problems. Fleas are like pet bullies! Grr! So how do we control a flea issue?
Getting rid of adult fleas is only a temporary fix because if all eggs are not removed there is going to be a big problem. Why? The eggs are placed in blankets, upholstery, and just about everywhere – really. Outside of using a flea deterrent, if you are aware of the fleas be sure to vacuum your carpet(s), wash upholstery, blankets, and kitty furniture. Even if you administer a flea zapping product on your cat you must be sure to wash everything where potential eggs may have been laid.
I’m sure if your cat has fleas? Inspect your kitt’s coat and if you see something similar to black specks of dirt and you already suspected a problem, they are probably fleas. This is what it looks like. Darn fleas!
