Yea sounds like mites to me hunni.

You will need to treat them both, we had drops that had to go on the backs of their necks two weeks apart which the vet gave us.

Mites, almost certainly.
Drops on the back of neck repeat two weeks later. Henry had them when I got him. Think stress can play a part... certainly did in his case.

Do you have a steam mop? If so, steam it.
If not, scrub well with a good disinfectant or spray with flea spray ... that's what I did when Henry had his little friends visiting. I steamed the carpet and rugs too.
