    if you'd been bitten you would have an itchy red lump but thats the worse that can happen and it would go in a day or so

    You won't get ill at all! The worst those little things do is give you a good bite! It will go down within a day, but I can't imagine one pat of the dog you'd get one on you! My cats recently had an outbreak due to the hot weather and the neighbour cutting the long grass (even though they are flea'd monthly) they managed to get some! I was bitten once and that was it! You'll be fine

    You'll be fine. A few years ago, my cats got fleas and I got bitten a couple of times. I'm still here to tell the tale!

    Re: fleas

    Hi Em.ma

    I have three cats and a dog fortunately all flea free now.

    At their worst they all had them. My ankles got covered in bites, i never got anything worse than itching.

    If you do find a flea on yourself try and catch it (between finger and thumb) and put it in water as they are very hard to kill otherwise.

    Re: fleas

    when i was younger i used to have flea bites all over my legs to the point where my school thought i had chicken pox lol, i had to wear long socks because when they went away i just got bitten all over again, my legs were always covered in them. so it's really nothing to worry about even if you do get bitten xx
