No good deed ever goes unpunished!!!! I had a litter of 4 foster kittens that were recently adopted out a few weeks ago. After that I started noticing that Dusty had a bunch of scabs along his neck, my first thought was the kittens were beating up on him, then I realized it was getting worse, so I thought allergies since it is a bad year for them here. A few days ago I noticed that Squeeker had the same thing-huh 2 cats with allergies, strange but it is a bad year. Well then last night I sat down to watch some TV and was petting Turbo and realized he had the same thing as well. Now what the heck is going on? So I call my boss who is a veterianarian and she says that after looking at Dusty the other day she thought it could possibly be Chyletiella aka Walking Dandruff, and that the fact that 3 of them have it now it has to be that. So now I have to treat all 9 of my cats for them, Dusty is currently living at my MIL house so I have to treat her 3 dogs, and we have 5 new foster kittens that I may not be able to treat because of their size. I also have to call all the people that I adopted out the kittens to and let them know that one of more of them is probably the culprit in all this. That should make the new parents pretty happy!! I guess that is the chance that you take when bringing in new cats to the house but seriously!!!!
