I suspect mine (that sounds awful doesn't it?!) jump on me straight off the cat then. I never get them on the legs, usually around the torso and they are quite happy to go inside my clothing!boboff wrote:But if you have on trousers or shorts or a skirt or what ever and they are on the floor, then you will more often than not get bitten where described with fleas. Or if you lie down then around your belly and on your arms. What Pea describes is exactly what my wife gets when she is in contact with fleas. She really does come up badly as well.
However I think everyone gets bitten by different things in different ways, as my brother gets harvest mite bites when he is here predominantly on his legs, whereas I get them in all the usual 'sweaty' places - under bra or knicker elastic and waistband - it's where they like best.
