How do cats get fleas?

When it comes to pesky fleas, it doesn't matter whether your cat likes to cuddle up inside or roll around outdoors. Fleas will still manage to find their way onto her fur.

When it comes to pesky fleas, it doesn't matter whether your cat likes to cuddle up inside or roll around outdoors. Fleas will still manage to find their way onto her fur.

Due to their strong-willed perseverance, fleas are determined to find your pet as a host for their next dinner party. According to Petful, these pests are prepared to jump as much as 100 times their own height just to find their way to a blood source. This trick allows fleas to travel quickly, therefore, even if your kitty is a homebody, these unwelcome irritants can still strike her at a moment's notice.

On the other hand, Petful also claimed that outdoor cats are more likely to attract fleas than their indoor counterparts. As fleas lurk in wooded areas, yards and parks, they'll take a plunge into your fluffy friend's fur as a quick source of fast food.
