So, I'm not certain my boyfriend gave them to me, but I have a very small infestation. I started finding "flea dirt" on them this past Tuesday.... but I couldn't find any fleas. I took them to the vet and bought them Advantage, which is supposed to kill all adult fleas and stop them from biting. I have raked and combed through both of their fur and have not found any fleas. I found two on the floor with just their legs moving and just one crawling on the on cats fur which I obviously removed and flushed!

I have vaccuumed twice since Tuesday, (now Friday).... so I HOPE that i only had a very minor infestation and have taken care of it. What do you think? I know there's not much I can do about the eggs, but if I see ANY sign again in the Spring, I can just get more Advantage, and repeat process.
I live in a very small appartment building with a bachelor appt. My one neighbour said her ferret had fleas.... so.... I'm thinking that was it.
I keep checking them, and combing them... I can't find any fleas. Good sign yes??
