If you have dogs and they have fleas, do the fleas stay on the dogs rather then jumping off? I do not have a dog but my sister came by with hers and now I have fleas. She claims that there are no fleas in her home and she never gets bitten but we have been under attack. I checked two of her dogs and found on one the black droppings of the fleas. I am concerned even if she comes over that there could be fleas on her as well and she will re-infect my home, can that happen as well.
Our cat always used to walk on our oriental rugs and would sit on the furniture. Now, he only will walk on the hard wood floors and avoids the carpet and never sits on the furniture any more. Why all of a sudden is he doing this? He is an older male cat that we took in as a stray 6 yrs ago.
