Your letter to the bugman:  Hello, Bugman.
I’m sincerely hoping you can identify this tiny bug that I keep finding crawling on me when I am in my living room at home. This only started a couple of weeks ago.
Fortunately, I’ve ruled out bed bugs. I tried to take useful photos, but I apologize for the poor quality.
I have a cat, but she has never been outside, and I’ve checked her over and found no sign of fleas. I’m almost certain this bug doesn’t fly, but it moves quickly.
I know you’re busy, but I’m grasping at straws.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Dear Jackie,
This looks like a Flea to us.  Even indoor cats can get Fleas, and households with no pets can also get Fleas.  Once when our editorial staff had no pets, a family of feral cats living under the house cause a major Flea infestation.  Squirrels and other rodents living in close proximity to a home might introduce Fleas to the household.

Hello, Daniel.
Thank you! I really appreciate you taking the time to identify this bug. I was able to get rid of them and my cat couldn’t be happier.
Thanks again!
Jackie Burger
