Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi there, this is Dr. Sean. I’ll be happy to answer your question about your cat.
A pop-up screen may appear asking if you would like a phone call. Please click NO, as I cannot take phone calls.
I'm assuming the near death in the ditch issue was before you got him?
Ok, is he a skittish cat?
Ok, so he is stressed then? Overgrooming of the belly and the back of the back legs is very common when they are stessed. They will lick the hair down smooth to the skin, but not have any sores on the skin. Is that what's happening?
That's ok, this isn't an emergency, so I can answer you at your convenience up until 11pm EST tonight, I'll be in and out of the house. Just post when you can, and I'll answer when I see your post.
If you'd like to continue answering your question, just respond to the question I asked. I can post through the day while I'm at work today.
