My cat has sores that...
My cat has sores that are bothering him on each side of his neck. They itch are puffy he has lost almost all of his hairs round his neck. We had sprayed inch relief stuff to help and it doesn't seem like it's making him stop. And he is starting to drool and has no interest in being around people anymore more. Witch in his case is not normal because he is a very active cat.
