Cats are not as expressive as dogs in sharing their emotion. However, a terrible itch in cats is very easily figurable, especially if it’s due to flea. Fleas are small pesky parasites that can torment your cat as well as stress you out. They spread very quickly, especially when it is summer.
You would probably be able to spot fleas on your cat’s body; but, the impact is much deeper and beyond your eyesight. When flea infests your cat’s skin it also results in flea eggs, larvae, and pupae. Thus the lifecycle of fleas continues and so is the trouble for your cat.
