If anyone can help me with this it would be great. About 6 months ago I noticed that my cat's fur on his back looked funny. It felt sticky to the touch. He is an indoor only cat, so I assumed he must have gotten under the sink or gone somewhere that cleaning supplies or shampoos were kept. The spots turned into mats even after repeated attempts with a slicker, so I reluctantly shaved the spots out. His fur grew back, only this time it was much worse. There were more mats and they were bigger. I bought a de-matting tool and used it as well as giving him a bath. After drying I noticed what looked like oily streaks on the fur on his back. These weird little wet spots or secretions. His fur gets crusty from the secretions even after using a slicker on him twice a day. Does anyone know what this could be? I've searched all over the internet and haven't found anything.
