    Fleas can be brought in on outdoor shoes & clothing. They may or may not get them. Do you suspect that they might have some?

    Fleas are nasty wee blighters - you may have had a visitor who has pets. One flea on that person would become several more quite quickly.

    It would be advisable to give your home a good going over with a flea spray & deterent. Have a word with the your vet regarding something to put on your cats to get rid of anything on them.

    This is the time of year when the flea population come to life so that might be why you are seeing them now.
