I know there are other threads on this site, and trust me I read them, but I guess I need peace of mind. I went out of town for a couple days and when I got back I noticed my cats were scratching really bad. My husband said he thought he saw a little black bug on one of my cats noses (I have 2). Anyway, I was sitting in my bed and 3 fleas were on my legs. We immediatly went out and bombed the house, came home the next day, as soon as we walked in, they jumped all over our ankles. We called a proffesional exterminator in and he came on monday. We have been vacuuming every day like everyone says, but even today when we walked in 4 or 5 more jumped right on us. I have been staying with my parents because my anxiety is so bad, I cry all the time....yes, over fleas. I am scared to go home, I don't want to go home. Will these go away? I guess I just need reasurrance. I keep reading so many horror stories on all the other websites that they can't get rid of them EVER. I have a beautiful home, and I can't imagine even going back there right now. My husband has been great, going over there everyday and vacuuming for me, because I can't even fathom going in there. I'm reading everywhere we have to move our furniture around get every crack and crevice, isn't that what the exterminator is for? Please give me some peace of mind. I am going slightly crazy, and driving everyone around me crazy too. By the way, I did treat my cats with drugstore treatment, behind the neck, so I don't know if that worked, but I took them to the vet when the guy came to do our home, and she said she couldn't give them any advantage yet for one month because it is toxic,and I already gave them something, but she did give them each a capstar and told me to give them each one every 3 days. And baths don't work, my cats are not declawed and they don't ever liked to be picked up, the vet doesn't evern like to trim the nails, they are really scared...of everything. Thanks! Sorry so long.
