My cat keeps licking this one spot near her genitals. Shes licking it RAW. I am very concerned and i thought it was a UTI..but now im not so sure because of the spot she keeps licking.. what do you think it could be?

[mind you she doesnt like to be picked anymore.. touched...or comforted..and SHE LOVEEEES that kind of attention. Im very concerned to what this could be changing my cat...

Answer by Kate
often this area can be associated with a parasite problem as they do like to gather around this area. Make sure she is treated for fleas on a monthly basis with some form of spot on treatment. this will also protect her from some forms of worms too.

If it was caused by stress and she was over grooming I would expect it to occur on other places on her body as well. So I do think it must be some form of parasite, either fleas, or worms, bot are easily treated.

Here are my pages about cat fleas and cat worms

best wishes Kate
