Please look up allergies and Malasezzia (yeast skin infection)
These things will make your cats paws itchy. Malasezzia often has the appearance of some gritty black stuff on the paws or within the pads.
I think you need to speak with your vet about this asap as if the paws are sore and red its possible you might well need coritsone treatment, if you do then please avoid the shot as you can not reverse it if you react, go for the pills and start up high and come down slowly.

Cat Health > allergies???

im not sure this would indicate allergies however this is something that I do every now and again. I roll around on my back and flip flop while I meow in what seems to be an annoyed voice, I dont seem to look really itchy but more so annoyed. If the kitty has allergies then they would clearly show in some other ways. very water eyes or nose or even respiratory problems that are not connected to cat flu or virus, spots on the skin, red skin patches, bit like sunburn. Crusty looking patches on the skin, grit within the paws (possible yeast problem caused by allergies) also other signs are the cat might have the runs a lot, this often indicated food related allergies.
As my dermatologist has said to my humans a few times, I MUST be treated with a montly flea solution even if I dont have fleas as this keeps the fleas away and that is one less problem to worry about. often people say their cats do not have fleas and that is very true but who said the cat didnt get bitten by one flea who jumped away and left for good. all it takes to set of a skin problem in a cat with flea allergy is ONE bite.

All the best

Hey Hector, so glad to hear your doing well with your skin problems.

We have heard that the litter is dangerous as well and to avoid it with younger cats and often kittens will test and try any sort of food including little, yep I did it when I was little, was nice eating litter back then, thats until I realised it was for peeing and pooping on. If you dont feel right about it and you think it might rock the boat with the skin problems then avoid it.

Hang in there with the skin probs friend. Im currently having another flare up!!!

Cat Health > Flea allergy dermatitis

Jordan

Devilish- Darling!

I suffer skin disease and one of my diagnoses was flea allergy dermatitis.

I would avoid cortisone at every costs but if kitty is in pain then its worth a shot, a lot of people dont know that many cats with skin disease and skin allergies to not respond very well to cortisone shots, pills work better and the shots can not be reversed if you react. Try a drug called cyclsosporine, more expensive but well worth it.

If kitty is still licking and itching I would consider looking at what she is eating, take away any food that has added chemicals in it, yes that means dry food as you only need to read the list of ingredients, we are cats and dont need 101 ingredients to make us happy. Also dont get sucked into these fancy allergy diets, you can try them later if all goes well. Stick with ONE MEAT only such as chicken, something she likes and keep a watch on the skin.
My mum often puts a shirt on me if I continue to lick at my skin but if your licking in a area that you can stop with a shirt then it would e hard to stop you.

If you wish to keep in touch then please feel free to email me, I hope I can help with the little bit of personal experience and advice at hand. If its any help I am having a skin flare up at the moment and I feel sore and miserable, (medications needs to be adjusted but need dermatologist to speak to mum first) get well itchy cat...

Cat Health > mood changes

If its any help I am a moody cow at the best of times. I just fall in love with my mum giving me pats but then if she puts a hair out of place I meow in a cranky way, I sometimes get down and swish my tail around, she tells me to cut it out as I am not supposed to be naughty like that. Im not a dominant type of cat, just a moody cat. they call me Jordan Moody Man at times. I think some cats (just like humans) are born moody.
All the best with your mood smile

Cat Health > Ulcers in Mouth- Help!!
Jordan

ulcers in the mouth are usually Stomatitis OR calici virus, did your vet consider taking a swab.
Sounds like you need medication to treat this.

Cat Health > Cat bathing!

Hi Tigger, Probably not as easy to wash a cat with so much fur but an easier option is to get a small container or water and soap that you will need to wash you with and a container or clean water, get a sponge and dip it into the soapy bucked, squeeze some water out and simply rub the sponge over your body, Ok you might not like it but it might be a bit easier than the other "drown the cat - attack the human" method. then go again and wipe over with clean water sponge. it woulds well for me and my sister but hey, we DONT like it but we do get cleaned.

Cat Health > Best Food For Allergies?

Jordan

Devilish- Darling!
 
 
Purred: Sat Apr 26, '08 7:00pm PST 
best foods for allergies are NATURAL foods and its best to NOT trust these big name companies who swear that their food is good for allergies as you can find out its not by looking at the 101 ingredients on the back.

remember that us cats in the wild hundreds of years back lived on meat products with the occasional veg such as grass and so on.

And if you are allergic to a certain food then you must avoid it at all costs.

all the best

Cat Health > Am I sick?

seperation anxiety maybe???
Get your mum to do a test with you, get your most loved food or even some fresh cooked chicken right out of the pan and see how you go with that. please also remember that when you throw up its not wise to eat straight away as you will only throw up again soon after, wait for an hour or so and have a very small amount this will give time for your insides to calm down as throwing up causes them to irritate.
I would say if you dont pick up soon its best to cheap with your vet

Cat Health > I have bumps all over me
Jordan

Devilish- Darling!
 
 
Purred: Thu Apr 24, '08 3:23am PST 
could well be allergic reaction, hope the antibiotics work.
Just because you dont have fleas doesnt mean that a flea didnt cause the reaction. I have skin disease and one of my allergens is fleas, mum had a fit when the skin doctor said she has to keep me flea free as mum always puts good flea stuff on me and she said Jordan never gets fleas. the skin doctor explained to mum that just because I have flea stuff on and I dont have fleas doesnt mean that one didnt come inside the house on mum long pants, bite me and jump off, it only takes one bite to set you off and the flea can sometimes be on your for 10 second.

All the best with your bumps I hope you get better soon
