Hello everyone!

I got a new 12 week old kitten, his name is Moon, almost two weeks ago now.

Everything has been great, he started eating the same day, running around, and being very affectionate with my husband and I.

About 3 days ago, his eye started having issues and he started shaking his head a bunch - we took him to the vet, who gave us some medicine and everything has already been looking better.

Now this morning my husband noticed a scab? burn? (photo attached below) on his back knee. I don't know where this may have come from, as we the heater, stove or anything else that may have burned him is out of his reach. Looking back, I did see him licking his leg more last night, but didn't think much of it.

Does anyone know what this might be and how to treat it?


Thank you so much!! x

Does look like a possible burn, but that can also from rubbing on something rough. I do recommend this product to have on hand for so many skin issues….I have even used it on myself. It is not toxic if ingested which is key with cats.

These guys heal fast..but keep an eye out for any changes and if it oozes or gets red etc which could be a sign of an infection and in need of a vet visit. @Moonchik
