How can I tell if my cat has fleas?

Sometimes trying to determine whether your cat has fleas can be difficult. He may not have a lot and they run real fast through that fur, so you can use a fine-tooth comb to go through the body, you may pick up a flying flea or you may even see what looks like black pepper. That black pepper, if you add a little bit of water to it and put it on a white Kleenex, it'll have a rusty color. Why? Because it's your cat's blood that's been processed through a flea. It's flea dirt; a nice way of saying flea poop.
