When you have an active outdoor cat, bug bites are inevitable. Even if you keep your cat indoors and protected, chances are he will still experience the odd bite. Be prepared in knowing what to do if your cat suffers from cat insect bites.
Flea bites are the most common bites for cats. These little insects attach themselves to your cat and bite your pet often. If you notice any symptoms like restlessness or itchiness in your cat, check his fur for insects. If you catch the flea infestation early you may be able to treat the cat fleas by simply washing your pet. If the infestation is more serious when caught you may need to purchase flea medication or a flea collar. Be aware that fleas originated from the environment your pet is in. Eliminate fleas not only from your pet, but from his environment as well. This will help prevent any re-infestation.
Mosquito bites and bee stings cause only a single bump on your pet (unlike flea bites which will be numerous). The bump of a mosquito bite will be bigger than that of a flea bite, and that of a hornet, bee, or wasp will be much worse. Bee, wasp and hornet bites and stings can cause a hot sensation to the touch, and can cause fever-like symptoms of shivering and vomiting.
