Cat Back leg scratching
by Alison Waumsley
Our cat has taken to hunkering down on all fours and then scratching with her back legs. It is is done in a variety of places but her favourite spot is on the carpet by the lounge/kitchen door. Any thoughts why?
Answer from KAte
This would suggest a parasite or skin issue in that area.
fleas and other mites are fond of this back leg area and is often one of the first places you notice them.
Your cats behavior is definitely a sign that is is in some distress from the itching or biting and so the sooner you can discover the cause the better.
