What changed in the Cat Chow Naturals Original and Indoor versions of cat food? And in the Party Mix cat treats? And in the Tidy Cat clumping, scent free and other versions of cat litter, but mainly the scent free??
About 8-9 months, maybe longer my 2 cats, both started to develop an allergy or something to these products. My long-hair tabby would scratch and chew herself to the point that she would bleed and have scabs on her tail, back, chin, chest, ears and shoulders. My short-hair Calico, would lick and chew herself until her stomach, tail and legs were hairless. Her eyes would run like she was crying over a long lost love. And before you say anything about fleas, they are both flealess!
After much trail and error, the main difference are the Party Mix cat treats! ...the Cat Chow Naturals cat food!! And the Tidy Cat cat litter!!
I had to change my cats' whole routine to figure out what was bothering them. What stinks is that even though making changes...not giving them Party Mix treats (now a competitor's brand), not using Tidy Cat litter (using a competitor's brand)...I am not feeding them Cat Chow Naturals, but I am giving them Fancy Feast hard food. And I am still giving them Fancy Feast canned food....which they love and will not eat anything else. However, my Calico still licks her stomach bald. My Tabby, seems to be ok. On the advice of my vet, I have changed their diet to just the chicken flavors. They do not get any of the "fish" or other flavors...which they miss.
Fancy Feast is a Purina brand and is not perfect because my cats still have issues, they just aren't as bad as they are with the other products. So, what did you change in your products that would make my kitten girl continually lick herself? She is 11 years old!! For the first 10 years of her life, she did not do this!
