On a recent visit to Jerusalem, I was horrified when I awoke covered with flea bites all over my legs, abdomen and neck. I found one tiny black bug on my salon floor. Its back was vertically flattened and virtually impossible to kill. An exterminator took me down to the garden and showed me the cats and the fleas that can jump 1 meter diredtly onto my legs and the crawl straight through my fishnet socks and eat me all up. He said it's a plague all over Jerusalem. So next time you pass that dumpster and cats jump out, be aware that chances are they are flea infested and will send some of their ectoparasites straight your way. The municipality is certainly aware of the problem and has done nothing. Nir Barkat, please. How about some animal control?
