Cat flea infestations typically begin with pets that have brought fleas indoors and conditions that favor flea development and reproduction. The pests have a much wider range of hosts than most other flea species. Cat fleas are one of most prevalent species of fleas found locally. Just because the name cat flea does not mean they will not pick other hosts. Often these fleas will select to feed on other hosts such as mice, rats and of course people.
