What to do if the cat has fleas

If you notice that the cat in your care has fleas and you have not been informed about this by the cat owner, please contact the cat owner immediately. They might have some flea treatment in the house already.

If not, agree with the cat owner to buy some BIOACTIVATION or Spot-on treatment in a local store or online.

Also suggest to buy HOUSEHOLD SPRAY to use around the cat’s home and as a precaution for yours.

It is quite common for outdoor cats in particular to catch fleas from other cats or animals and relatively easy to treat if being diligent. Nevertheless, avoid contact with carpets or furniture in the house since fleas lay eggs which can attach to your clothes. Keep doing your agreed duty of feeding the cat/s, emptying the litter tray and changing the water, but try to minimize contact with the cats and always wash your hands afterwards thoroughly.

Please also inform Cat in a Flat in the event this is a recurring case which might need further attention.
