How Do You Know If Your Cat Has Fleas?

catscratchTo tell you the truth, I am not a good flea detector. Cats are fastidious groomers and their behavior car appear normal unless you suspect that they may have fleas. My cat Millie occasionally goes out on our porch when I’m out there. I’ve noticed that she’s been scratching her neck recently so the first thing I suspect is that she may have fleas. This is not always the case. After a thorough investigation, I still don’t see any evidence of a flea infestation. I am not completely sure so I bought a flea and tick product just to be on the safe side.

According to Pet Md, In severe infestations, it’s easy to spot fleas jumping and moving on and off your cat’s body. In less obvious situations, you may notice that your cat is restless and doing more scratching or chewing on certain areas of his body. Shaking the head often and scratching at the ears is another indication of a possible flea infestation in your cat.

Excessive and constant licking at the haircoat is another sign of potential fleas, especially in cats. Many cats will even groom the fleas out of the haircoat before you get a chance to see the evidence.

Remember, there are lots of pet medications and flea and tick products on the market. Check with your vet and let him recommend the best product for your pet.

Remember, your pets count!

greenie-pill-pocketIt can be very difficult to give a cat a pill. I have to give my cat Molly a pill twice a day. She has to take pet medication for hyperthyroidism. I buy a product called Greenie Pill Pockets. These are moist treats with a carved out hole in the middle where you sneak the pill. Molly loves these and sits in the kitchen all the time waiting for me to give her another one. She would eat these instead of cat food or cat treats if she had her way. Even though Greenies make nutritious cat treats, they are kind of expensive. About $9.00 for 45 pill pockets. It works great for giving medications but can break your pocket book if you are using them for treats. As all of you know, I spoil Molly so she does get some of those pill pockets as treats –—ouch—-It seems like I’m always buying more!

Molly recently has discovered a way to eat around the pill and leave it on the floor. I occasionally find a pink pill on the floor. Now I watch her until she finishes the pill pocket including the pill. Cats are smart but they are also sneaky!
