Fleas are champion jumpers

Cat fleas (the most common around homes) can jump up to 8 inches and as far as 19 inches. Relatively speaking a human would have to jump upward the length of a football field and forward about two and a half city blocks to match their athleticism. An adult flea can take as many as 15 blood meals a day and consume up to 15 times body weight.
