Altho we enjoy our squirrels they do frequent the patio, small deck and the close perimeter of our house (we live on the edge of a wooded area) and I wonder if my indoor cats can get fleas through the screen on the doors and the windows that have their screens at the floor level. My cats love the sit at these areas to watch the wildlife.

Unless the squirrels are coming right up to the screens while the cats are sitting there (which I suspect they don't do), flea transfer should not be a problem.
