    Health. Heathly cats attract less fleas than stressed out cats or ones with their immune systems working overtime.
    For you, try taking a B complex vitamin, fleas are put off by the B complex and will have a better chance of leaving you alone. You can also try rubbing some brewers yeast into the affected cat’s coat, it’s a flea repellant and won’t hurt her if she eats some of it. They just had that suggestion in the latest magazine our health food store puts out.

    I had the same problem one time when visiting my in-laws, no one else was being bit but I was. I was pregnant at the time and it sucked! Since it is your house, try to get rid of the fleas, they have sprays that you can use outside and then do the inside of the house also. If you do not want to use a bunch of chemicals for the inside of the house, try using a nightlight with a pie-pan filled with water and a few drops of dish-soap in it. The fleas are attracted to the light and jump into the water and die.

    There are actually different species of fleas. There are canine fleas and feline fleas. The dog fleas can bite and live off any host and can transfer from one host to another. However, the cat fleas can only live and flourish on one host. The minute they bite a new host….they die!!! After years of adaptations, these little tiny blood sucking creatures have adapted to stay alive….either staying or leaving their original host!
