My cat has confined herself to the bathroom for about 2 weeks now I have a 10yr. old spayed female declawed strictly indoor cat. First (been about a month)I noticed her itching alot. After inspection... I did notice a few fleas & her skin was real bad in areas. Small sores & scaley or scabby. I assume from fleas.Gave her a home flea dip & an application of Hartz flea on back of neck. She has now confined her self to the bathroom for about 2 weeks now. Her appetite & water intake seems regular, no vomitting (just hair balls from long fur) no diharea. She has never confined herself.... I notice a couple fleas & her skin is still a little scabby.... is it the fleas making her this way. Please help
Its not just about fleas.... I am worried why cat (Chio) stay in the bathroom all the time now for about 2 weeks. She comes out to eat & runs back in bathroom on counter. Thats where she sleeps now. I've had her for about 5 years & have live here in this apartment for about 2 years & she has never acted this way before.
