Cat over washing

by Louise
(Aylmer, Quebec, Canada)

If my cat is awake, she's either eating or continually washing herself. If she needs me for something and I can't go right away, she'll sit beside me and just wash and wash until I'm ready for her. Her fur feels super clean, almost staticky. Is this a problem?

Hi
Some cats will over groom due to anxiety and this could be what is happening for your cat. I have a couple of pages which may provide you with some more information
