We have a bed bug infestation in our building. Are they biting my cats too? My one cat has a swollen eye.

We're getting bit from head to toe and I'd hate to think the cats are suffering and I'm not doing anything about it.

Bed bugs don't live on pets or spend as much time on your pet as the more common pests (such as fleas, ticks, lice and mites), but they can bite your pets. We also know that bed bugs are very efficient hitchhikers and can be transported to your home via luggage, clothing, bedding, furniture, etc., so it's possible that bed bugs could also hitchhike in your pet's fur or its bedding or clothing. Hopefully, your building management is being very proactive about this. If not, the problem will only get worse.
