Should be something easy to spot.. as they usually start licking/biting after they eat their food, or usually within the first hour.

-- I used to work in a high end pet store that specifically sold organic pet food, and other specialty foods.

Nope, no change. My guess is that it might have started out with a flea bite and he just kept aggravating it. He is an aggravating cat.

Where was he biting? If it was around his feet could be something outside or inside... you'd be surprised how many animals are either allergic to grass or carpets.

If it were fleas it is a tad early but certainly not all that unusual if you have a dog and he goes outside to hunt. And speaking of which, fleas were pretty bad the last 2 years.

His back legs mostly. He's been an in/outdoor cat all his life so I don't think it was allergies. It's possible he had fleas about 6 weeks ago but I got him bathed and put that flea goop on his shoulders.

It might be possible he developed an allergy to the flea goop too. I hope he is all better!

Never rule out allergies, animals are just as susceptible to them as we are. If they eat a food long enough, eventually they develop which is why so many high end foods are created and meant for rotational diets.

Animals seem especially prone to become allergic to chicken, which is the main meat the food industry uses because it is the easiest to digest, and has a lot of nutrition.




Well usually feet and around the tail means fleas >.<

Also.. I should probably say that I have the habit of over-explaining things.. can't help it.

I have one of these
They are super awkward to use and significantly less efficient than a plain skateboard
