When I first collected these fleas, I assumed they were all cat fleas. When I got them under the scope I was pleasantly surprised.

Since you IDed this one, can you add some info so we add it to the species page? Thanks.

I would be glad to, but i'm not sure how to do it?

There are two ways. You can either add your comments here and I will include them in the guide page, or you can add them to the Page Improvement Forum and any editor would do it.
Whatever is more convenient to you. Thanks in advance.
