    Hey! I’m new to this site and I have had a sphinx cat named monti for about 7 years now. He has had these blue bumps all over him, face body and tail.

    My little bumpy sphynx, any ideas?

    Our sphynx keeps getting a bumpy rash under his armpits, legs, back of the neck and sometimes on his ankles and face, sometimes it's just bumpy, sometimes the bumps look red, and when parts of it start to heal it turns to little dark grey spots. At the moment, there's a bit of everything! :( We...

    Scabs and red, bumpy skin

    So I'm noticing that my girl Charmayne has scabs around her neck, probably from scratching, and little pinkish bumps as well. I keep her nails trimmed and she had a scratching post which she uses daily so I'm thinking the scratching is not the occasional scratch. Then I also noticed more bumps...
