We haven't been bitten by fleas, I haven't seen fleas on the carpet or floor (they're in the bathroom & we have white floor mats), and Maui scratches more than they do (I know he doesn't have them!) it's just for comparison
I combed them tonight and didn't find very much. I rinsed in a white bowl with Dawn dish soap & water and wiped off on a junky white towel. I found tiny tiny little black pieces of whatever and a few bigger pieces but nothing I thought looked like an actual flea. I mean they're pretty distinct compared to the dirt, right?! I think some of what I combed up may have been old dried blood because the water turned slightly brownish/reddish- nothing crazy and some would wipe off of the comb, but it was all old looking- rusty kinda.
Is it possible they had fleas and for whatever reason they don't now? They just have the left over tell-tale signs?
I assume I just continue grooming them until I don't see anything- how long do I have to do that before it's finally ok for me to let them near Maui?
Hopefully this wasn't the longest way ever to ask a question that has a very simple answer!
