A question related to flea

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My cat is strictly an indoor cat. The only chance that he will be exposed to outside would be a visit to Vet's office. I feed him Program monthly. So, I would like to know what the chance is for him to get flea problem.

Thanks for the help. Jean

My 3 cats are strickly indoors, but we've had flea problems in the past. Some times the cats get immune to the same flea treatments, so you might have to change every once in a while.

As for getting fleas, those lil' boogers can come in the house on your clothes and etc. So, it can definitely happen but since your cat is on Program the chances are probably slimmer.

In truth this would matter a great deal on where you live and what you deal with on a regular basis. If you live in a rural area the chances of getting fleas is slim, but I wouldn't be surprised - a large amount of forest and foliage with a high animal population would allow a flea or two to sneak into your home from time to time. The chances increases if you have any contact with animals who are outdoor.

But if you live in an urban area the chances are even slimmer. I don't live in Seattle, but I live close enough. I keep the windows open when the weather permits (which is barely enough these days), but I have never noticed or seen fleas on either of my indoor only cats.

Hi Jean!

i have two indoor kitties as well. They are strictly indoors. However, they do go out with me in their carriers a lot of times.

They have yet to have flea problems (touch wood!!)

i was thinking unless or until your furbabies go out to the yard or lawn areas, or unless they are exposed to other kitties with fleas, the chances are pretty slim. Just a thought.

Smiles and Cheers!
