Geiireteerde vel
Ek het ''n tortois shell en wit kat, haar vel is vreeslik geiireteerd, maak rou kolle wat sig en die hare val op die kolle uit, partymaal is die sigplekke geneig om bloederig te wees. Ek vermoed dis ''n allergie, wat kan ek daaraan doen? Ek sit elke maand vir haar revolution vlooi spot op.

Hi Stien,

It sounds like a flea-bite allergy, and you do not always see fleas on a cat with flea-bite allergy.

It would be good to take her to the vet for a proper diagnosis and some immediate treatment. If it is a flea-bite allergy, then cleaning her bedding and increasing her flea treatments will help in the long-term.
