    Fleas are insidious little suckers. They can live in carpets and elsewhere for two months with no sustenance. Or when younger they can hibernate for a year. It's often recommended that furniture or items you suspect may be housing fleas to be thrown out.

    Does your kitty sit by an open window? Depending on how bad they are in your area, an infested squirrel that's right outside the window where your kitty is sitting can transfer a flea (or a billion) to your cat in no time. You could have also had contact with an animal that has fleas and carried them into your home and to kitty.
