What causes lice in cats

There are currently two main theories on the cause of lice infestation in cats. The first theory is that the lice are actually a parasite that originated from somewhere else in the world, but then adapted to the cat and started to reproduce. The second theory is that cats have an inherent resistance to lice and have no need to have lice.

A third theory is that cats have an immunity to parasitic infections such as lice, but this theory is disputed.

Lice have a life cycle similar to a mammal. They have a head, thorax and abdomen.

Lice are first seen on the cat when they emerge from the dirt and start to move over the cat's fur. Within a few hours, the lice will move from the front of the cat's fur towards the back. The lice try to get as close to the skin as possible, but this is very difficult to do. It is much easier for them to survive on the fur, where their body heat can be sustained.

The louse, which is the only visible part of the louse, is about 0.5 millimetres long. The louse can be found on you cat's fur on the back and the belly of your cat. The louse puts its head underneath the cat's fur and lays its eggs. The eggs hatch within 3 days and the nymphs are what you see on your cats fur.

The nymphs, which are the only visible part of the lice, are about 0.5 millimetres long. The nymphs can be found on the cat's fur on the back and the belly of your cat. The nymphs hatch within 3 days and the nymphs are what you see on your cats fur.

The nymphs and lice can be found on a cat's fur, but they can also be found on your cat's skin.

A louse on your cat's skin is called an egg.

You may be wondering, “Why does my cat have a crusty chin?” Most cats enter a state of semi-ecstasy when rubbed on that sweet spot under the chin. This is in part because it feels nice, and partly because they’re marking us as their territory. But sometimes that velvet chin feels gritty and you look closely to find black bumps, scabs and perhaps even oozing spots. Read more
