My cat is normally a very active pet, however for the past few days she will avoid carpet at all costs. For example, she will sit at our two kitchen stools and if we try to move her, she will quickly run back there. In fact, she only gets on the carpet to eat/drink and go to the litter box. If you move her off of those stools, she will go on another hard platform such as a counter-top.
Coincidentally(?) we've also had a flea problem in the past few days. We've been trying to get rid of them and also giving her flea baths (which she loves), a collar, etc. I don't know if cats are smart enough to connect the dots, but I hate seeing her like this. Is there something else wrong with her? How do I help her out?
