I have a cat, Kiki. Who shivers a little bit nothing crazy…

Customer Question
Hello. I have a cat...
Hello. I have a cat, Kiki. Who shivers a little bit nothing crazy just a little shiver. she didn't ever get the care she needed as a kitten so she is on the skinny side and I have noticed recently that she is losing hair a bit but she is getting it back as well. She had a ear infection a little while ago and she was shivering then to and they checked for quit a bit however the vet said just by looking at her she knew it wasn't anything with her brain or off in there somehow so I will take her shivering isn't that either. She eats well very well and drinks well how ever I don't know if she has any bathroom problems I never see her use it for a number two. Thanks

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand KiKi is shivering lately. I can help you understand common causes of this and what should be the next steps of treatment. Afterwards, I would appreciate very much a review of this service.

Can you please tell me if KiKi's entire body is shivering or if it is just a specific part (i.e. head, tail, etc.) Does KiKi have a history of chronic vomiting or hair balls? Any diarrhea or loose stool?
