Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi there my name is***** and I can help you.
This sounds like fleas. Was the cat you were watching itchy or had hair loss? Does the cat go outdoors? Are there other pets in the house?
This is what a flea looks like.
There is a time delay between us:)
I will answer your questions but first do you have any pets?
Fleas do not use us as a host so there is not a large concern. Washing the clothes you wore in hot water, vacuuming furniture, and cleaning floors is enough. They will not flourish as they prefer dogs and cats to live on. If you are itchy, I would treat myself like I would any other bug bite. Do you have any more questions for me?
They can not live for a long period of time on clothes yarn luggage without a blood meal. If they lay eggs they may hatch when you get home. As long as your pets are on prevention you will not have a large outbreak. WAsh your clothes and clean/vacuum your luggage. Any more questions?
Very good and again no concerns. A five star rating is appreciated and it is the only this site credits me for helping you. Good luck and I'm sorry you were exposed to this.
