Asked October 18, 2016, 10:23 AM EDT
They were not present the day before, as I had changed my sheets, and were on on top of the bedspread, not underneath the sheets, on the mattress, or anywhere else. I have treated my cat for fleas recently, but this does not seem related to him.
I had a house plant nearby that was knocked over, perhaps the cat tracked soil insects on top of the bed?
I also had an old oriental carpet below the bed that I thought may have the worms, I have now thrown it out thinking of carpet beetles, but I am unsure that their larvae look like this.
Is it connected to my cat's fleas?
Any help would be much appreciated!
