I’ve just given my indoor cat a good comb and found a few little bugs, they look like fleas but didn’t jump and was quite happy to walk around the comb and my finger, any ideas what they could be please.

Do you treat your cat?

Fleas tend to jump. Do you flea treat your cat?

Is there any flea dirt (small black specks) in your cats fur?

We don’t tend to flea him due to him being an indoor cat and no there wasn’t any flea dirt in his fur.

You're still supposed to treat indoor cats as you can bring them in from inside too

Yep. Indoor cats should be treated.
Get to the vet. Don't buy online or at a pet shop or supermarket!
And frontline is rubbish too.
If you need to spray the house use Indorex.

I feel your pain. I've started a thread about fleas today, too. No advice, just wanted to say you're not alone flowers

Indorex, vacuum like crazy, wash all cats bedding and any loose cover that she lays on, get a vet treatment for her, better to be safe than sorry.

Really hope it was stuff from the vet. Anything OTC won't work and may be dangerous.
