Hi all Please help! My kitty is pulling her hair out around her tail. A few weeks ago we switched from Iams kitten food to Iams cat food. It was right around the time she started doing this. She is acting fine otherwise. I suspected a food allergy so I switched her back to kitten food and now she is eating it fine. Lately I have noticed she dosen't like to be touched around her tail. It may be because her hair is itchy so I am not sure. She is eating and playing and using her potty box just fine. I don't see any fleas either. I was told she may be allergic to her plastic food bowl but she has always used it even before this started. Also, her bottom lip swells up from time to time and gets a blister looking thing on it. Then a few days later it is gone again. What could be wrong? I checked around the top of her tail this morning and there are little scabs at the base of her tail on top. Is this mites or from her itching? I have had some people I know tell me she is neurotic.(sp) I don't believe this though because she is such a loving little girl. Please help!!!!!!!!
