Cat scratching himself & bleeding!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My cat has been scratching himself recently and sometimes the scratches bleed. This is mostly on his head (chin/cheeks/ears). He definitely doesn't have fleas as we just finished a six-month treatment for them and I regularly trim his claws so they're not too sharp. I've read that cats can over-groom themselves if they're too bored. Do you think that's what's happening?

My cat does this due to allergies, both food and environmental. You may want to mention that to your vet. smile.gif
