    hi guys, well wee Binky has red spots all over her neck area, I am unsure on why this is happening the only thing we can think is the amount of medicine she has taken in her short life as her food is the same, but iv been reading on here that they can just become allegic to there food! The vet gave me malaseb shampoo which we have used but we can’t leave it on the recommended time the longest she will tolerate is a minute, binky hates the bath, I have been cleaning them daily with vetericyn as some r open!

    It started as a few but slowly increased over a few weeks! Any advice ideas are greatly appreciated! Can stress cause this, she is on heat! Waiting on another poop test to ensure it’s clear before she is spayed fingers crossed! Thanks xx

                  Hi guys, well wee Binky still has these spots, it looks like there healing n then they turn brown, then ii find another one poping up! I have read everything on the site regarding skin conditions n I am wondering if it’s the litter I use world best cat litter since I got her! What u think?
                  Everything else is the same, I wash her blankets with sensitive washing powder, food is the same! She’s off all medication! I read that sometimes there can be link with litter! I seen that some use Dr. Elsey but I couldn’t find it in the uk!

                  Looking for a good sensitive natural litter in the uk if anyone knows one!

                  Thanks xxx

                    I don’t recall, but did your vet check for ringworm? We had a girl where she never got rings on her skin, but rather would scab up and then leave a brown spot/freckle. They can check real fast under a black light to see if the spots light up.

                          It probably isn’t, but when you say they disappear and another comes back makes me think you might as well just check.

                            I 1000% understand as my too wee ones had me at hello lol and they went through a bout of throw up and liquid poop and i thought i was going to have a heart attack from stress . It cleared up on its own after 4 days thank goodness and they now have doubled in size in the month we've had them. I wish you all the luck i can send

                                Hi guys, so an update on Binky, had to rush her to the vet she had blood coming out her ureatha, I panicked incase it was related to her getting spayed as Binky is my first kitty!

                                Vet said it’s a urine infection maybe due to stress of surgery, spoke about her spots he said it’s not a yeast infection n doesn’t think it’s the litter gave her a slow release antibiotic jab which will last 2 weeks so should clear up her urine infection n spot if not I Hav to go back n get a urine test, scan of bladder, scraping of spots!

                                God bless wee Binky she just git the all clear for her tummy issues! Hoping this will work!

                                Thank u so much for all ur help n advice n knowledge, u guys keep me sane, I Will be changing her litter anyways to one I seen on one of the links on here, as even it’s not the litter, prevention is better than waiting on something else happening! Lovs xxx

                                    Poor little Binky. Glad you spotted in quickly. stress in fact can bring out UTIs and URIs. Some think this breed is fragile, but usually we see them only fragile when they are kittens. She will be fine in no time. Please update us on the skin scrape results. Your information will no doubt help a member in the future.
