My cat keeps twitching

by miss heslop

my cat keeps twitching and trying to clean her back half and running round..what can be wrong?

this sounds like she either has fleas or another parasite on her back or she is having an allergic reaction to something possibly a bite.

my old cat was allergic to flea bites. even though she did not have fleas if one jumped on her from outside and bit her she would have this terrible twitching reaction too. It would drive her crazy so we took her to see a vet who gave her an anti histamine injection.

Please check for fleas first though as this is the simplest to remedy.

i have a couple of pages on my site which will help you further one about cat fleas and the other about allergy reactions in cats and what to do . here they are


best wishes kate
