Skin issue

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm sorry this is only my second post, but I am a little concerned and found this forum whilst looking online for help.

Basically Dave, my cat, had a scab on his left shoulder, it's been there a couple of weeks (at least) and despite being a bit loose didn't come adrift. Anyway tonight I looked at it again and it fell away in my fingers, but with it came a large klump of fur (attached to the scab).

Is this strange or unusual or am I worring about nothing? Should just watch for any other things appearing or seek a vet's advice?

thanks for any advice that you could give.

Hi Tibbi1m-

I don't think you have anything to worry about, unless the clump was *extremely* large and the skin looks unhealthy. Sometimes a clump of hair will come away with a scab. Just make sure that the skin underneath the scab looks fine, and that he's not developing other scabs. I'm sure you'll keep an eye on this- you seem like a very diligent catmom to Dave!

Do you know why the scab developed to begin with? Did Dave injure himself on something or was it from him scratching himself?

Unless there's anything weird underneath, your kitty sounds fine
