How to know if there is tick and flea infestation?
Sorry, I know it sound stupid. How do I know kitty have tick and flea? I googled, and it says to look out for black speck, but I don't see any on ET. But I noticed he's been scratching his chin/face/ear and neck quite often. Lately, I seemed to see some funny insect that I have never seen before. Should I be able to see these tick and flea crawling all over kitty?
Once, about 2wks ago, ET was rubbing me and something fall off from him that look beigy colored. By the time I stood down to take a closer look, it had disappeared. 2nd time was I found a black round insect on a cushion. Picked it up and wanted to throw out the window, but before I could reach the window, it dropped off from my finger and can't be found anywhere. The 3rd time was yesterday, the same black colored insect fall off from don't know where while I was cleaning ET's basket. I managed to pick them up and squeeze hard till its flat, then dump in into the waste paper basket.
I'm sure getting nervous about any kind of infestation cos I do feed the strays, I'm not sure if I am bringing any of these nasty tick and flea home, though I do use repellent on myself.
