i just noticed that my cat has a bald spot above his eyes. The second spot above his left eye, I saw maybe a couple days later. I also noticed that there seemed to be flea dirt around those areas, but nowhere else and there completely no fleas. On any of my 4 animals.When I got Sunny, who is the one with the bald spots, he and his brother were infested with fleas (the person who gave me them never said they had fleas). Our Shih tzu also got infested. They have been long gone now, it’s been three years since and haven’t seen any fleas anywhere. We had the house flea bombed. And I get that people can bring in fleas from outside, but none of my animals are showing signs at all that fleas are present. I attached a photo, sorry it’s the best I can get right now but I tried washing it with water and a cotton ball. Anybody have any ideas or experiences like mine?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that if you have flea dirt you have fleas. The usually don't spend a lot of time on the animals but are in the carpets, florring, bedding etc... I would run a flea comb through all of your pets.

Thank you 🙏🏼 I’m not sure if it’s flea dirt or just dust or some thing, but I haven’t been able to collect it and put a drop of water on it to see if it dissolves. But thank you for ur comment, I’ll try that

Fleas aside, I wanted to add that those "bald spots" above the eyes are actually pretty common in cats. All three of my boys have them, they're perfectly normal. :) Your boy might just have it a little more prominently because he's scratching from the fleas.
