QuestionsCan a visitor bring fleas to my house?
Kswit asked 2 months ago

Hello,  thanks so much for your help!  My daughter has a cat with fleas but has been working hard to rid them. She would like to visit me in about 10 days and I also have two cats. I’m afraid she might carry some home, I do not want fleas!  Should I tell her not to come or am I over thinking it?  Thanks again!

I forgot to mention she is not bringing her cat.

It should be fine for her to come over. There is some risk, but it would be pretty low I’d imagine. It may be a good idea for her to brush or shake off her pants, shoes, and socks before entering your home.
