Default Insect bites at this time of year?

Rob has two huge, red bites on his forearm. They look like mozzie bites but I'm sure it isn't the time of year for mozzies? The only other thing I can think of is cat fleas but I don't think it's the time of year for cat fleas either. Any ideas?

Hi Jameela

Fleas are active all year round, I think other insects might be too

Now I have come over all scratchy!!!

Love

Oh dear. Have frisked the cats (felt like an old-school nit nurse) and yup, they are fleabags. Frontline for the pair of them.
