A few weeks ago Pushkins came home with a patch of fur missing, as if she'd been shaves. i posted a picture in one of the face book groups and most people said she'd obviously got caught under something or had been in a fight. The edges of the missing fur were too neat and her skin undamaged so I started looking through for other cases of cats being shaved and I was startled at the amount of results I found for the are we live in. I've connected with a few other people with similar stories, all incidents occurring during the night, no other skin damage and the area not sensitive.
What do you think? This photo was taken this week and her fur is starting to grow back.
Both her and Bob are now indoors full time as the temperatures are reaching 40c+. They both go out early morning at 5am for an hour, then back out again after 9pm until we go to bed. As a result her routine is shot to pieces and she's started to become needy again, sleeping anywhere and everywhere, following me around from room to room. If I'm not tripping over the dog, it's the cat.
Our daily afternoon cat nap, when I get home from work.
Keeping a close eye on me while I do some paperwork
While I was watering the plants, she walked round the wall of the property keeping an eye on me.
Dusting the lounge, she sat and waited patiently for me to finish.
And grrrrr she's rediscovered her love for sleeping on the dining room table, so I've had to cat proof it again.
