As a compulsive blogger and reader have been personally contributing cat articles of my cats on "Pictures of Cats" blog website owned and managed by Britisher Mr Michael.Broad."Pictures of Cats" is the perfect website to understand cat problems as various cat owners and fanciers contribute to the site.Thanks to "P.O.c" discussion blog have finally come to the conclusion that Queen cat Matahari suffers from the sickness known as "O.C.D". Matahari has “O.C.D” problems as she over-grooms excessively to the point of looking wet and dirty. She has no flea problems and to re-confirm the same i got her bathed in “Flea Shampoo’ just yesterday(Tue 2-10-2012).Even after the bathe she began her habit of licking herself, thoroughly confusing and irritating to me.Otherwise, she is a perfectly normal cat with a habit of over-eating and a tendency to put on weight.Her kitten Matata, now a 3 1/2 year old tomcat is robust and never over-grooms his fur.He has an excellent thick fur coat and is a handsome specimen of his breed.Strange, the mother cat over-grooms while the kitten cat from the same lineage is absolutely normal.

Please make sure as she is overweight that there is nothing internally going on. My Alex was very sick with Triaditis and overgroomed as well because she was in pain. They are extremely clever at hiding pain and it comes out in other ways. I say take her to the vet if you haven't already to make sure all her blood levels are within the normal range. I do have an article I wrote on my website though about OCD and allergies. What are you feeding her? If it's not grain free, you need to get her off of grains as cats are obligate, true carnivores and do not need grains. More often than not, grains cause allergies that manifest this way. Here's my article: OCD & Allergies

I will have to email you the link for my website as I am getting error 4.
