While everyone else gets all riled up about tick season, the warm weather means another parasitic pest is upon us: fleas. The rising temperatures makes it more hospitable for eggs to hatch, and more probable for adult fleas to jump onto unsuspecting cats.
If you're not sure if your cat is under attack, check for these signs:
*Excessive grooming — making fleas difficult to find
*Red bumps or scabs, specifically along neck and back
*Brown parasites jumping or crawling in fur
Now that you’ve identified what’s bugging your cat, you can begin to address the problem through a variety of options,In addition to seeing your vet, you can still help your cat with these easy treatments. Here's how:
*Remove fleas with a flea comb — dip comb in a mixture of dish soap and water to kill fleas on comb
*Bathe your kitten or cat with a specially-formulated flea shampoo
*Treat your cat with a flea spray
*Use a flea preventive year-round
*Inspect and comb weekly to monitor a flea infestation on your cat
