Male Cat

My male cat Mr Boots, is about 1.5 yrs old. he is nurtured but I've notice he is licking his private area a lot lately and also licking his fur smooth off on both back legs on the inside of the leg... any idea what this might be??

Answer by KAte
this area is often where parasites such as fleas like to gather so it could well be that he may have fleas. Check his fur and make sure you give him his monthly spot on treatment.

There are other possible causes too. See this page for more on skin and fur problems for cats

best wishes Kate

I love your kitty! I also have a male cat and his name is Bootsie. He is 4 years old and he is a tabby cat also. My husband rescued him from the outside when he was about 3 months old(I think). I love the name Mr. Boots!!!! I also have another kitty. She is named Bonnie and she is a little over 1 years old now. Bootsie and Bonnie love each other. They are sooo cute together!
