Rose-the-cat is infected with fleas. (COMIC: A Rose by Any Other Name)

Fleas were animals native to Earth commonly found on dogs, (TV: The Two Doctors) and in "a beggar's robes". (TV: The Masque of Mandragora) According to the Eleventh Doctor, even educated fleas "do it". (TV: Hide)

Behind the scenes Edit

The Doctor's mention of the species in Hide is in reference to Ella Fitzgerald's "Let's Do it, Let's Fall in Love":

Birds do it, bees do it. Even educated fleas do it. Let's do it. Let's fall in love.
