So we just moved into our new place two weeks ago, and the previous tenants had a few cats. Didn't seem to be an issue, and they cleaned the place, but lo and behold, it was not enough. We have a flea infestation, and our poor little kitty is absolutely CRAWLING with dozens (hundreds?) of these disgusting things. They like to burrow into his fur and out of sight, but every now and then after he's been really still they'll come out in full force—especially on his head/face. At first I thought they were some kind of burrowing mites because I'd never seen anything like it, but pretty convinced now that they're fleas.
So why am I bitching? Because we were fucking idiots and gave the damage deposit back to the previous tenants before the end of 30 days. Had we still had the deposit, we could use it to pay for the place to be taken care of professionally. It's an old, carpeted house, and there's no way in hell we'll be able to get rid of these things on our own. So now we have to shell out at least $100 to get this shit taken care of. Meanwhile, the little guy is going through hell. FUCK. —First time dealing with fleas
