If your cat has ever had fleas, you know exactly how much of a problem fleas can be.
Fleas are the most common external parasite from on cats, and the consequences of flea infestation are terribly uncomfortable for your cat. They can even cause deadly disease in some rare cases. Flea bites cause horrible itching, and for a cat that is hypersensitive, this can cause incessant scratching resulting in open wounds in the skin that are vulnerable to serious infection. As well as the discomfort they cause your cat, they can also carry zoonotic diseases that can be transmitted to humans.
