Do you keep Stuart's claws trimmed short? It might help to make sure they stay short and don't get any sharp points.
He sure does! He loves her so much!
He growls at the other kitties if they hiss at her
I yell at him for growling at them, but it's so dang cute.

I don't know, I told him three kitties was plenty, and he said "But mom! I promise I'll take good care of her!"

Some are just skin oriented diseases but others are more serious. Our Rottie passed at age 6 from kidney failure due to canine lupus. He had this same type of irritation pattern that started at age 1 1/2.
That's good to know, he should have a vet appointment comming up soon. I hope it's not autoimmune problems! I'm pretty sure it's from Stuart because you'll hear him yelp and he'll come running with a bloody scratch. That spot on his nose just happened last week when Stuart hooked his claw into Thor's poor nose. I ran through the house to save Thor, he was making an awful noise!

have you tried soft claws/paws
theyre normally good
I was just talking with my SO about that the other day. I keep all the kitties claws trimmed and it's not helping a whole lot with Thor's face. They play so rough together, bitting and pulling on each other. I think we'll just have to get some soft paws on Stuart.
Thor actually looks better today now that he's gone two days without playing with Stuart, he's too busy cuddling and protecting his kitty.
We're thinking of naming her Luna.
