Devlinn is 8 years old. I got her from a family member. I continue to use what they used to bathe all their cats. Johnson’s and Johnson’s baby wash in the yellow bottle. I’ve been trying to go longer between washes and have been pushing to make it two weeks. I recently started seeing that her underside and back of her legs are pretty brown and her skin has become flaky. She use to live in New Mexico dry dessert and now lives in Missouri where we have high humidity. I know all our skin was pretty dry this winter and lately, could this be affecting my cat too? She also lives in her heated cat bed under a blanket, could this be aiding the dry skin? I read about putting on olive oil before a bath, but is avocado oil ok too? I also was looking into trying Johnson’s and Johnson’s hypoallergenic cotton wash since she’s used that brand her whole life. I’ve contemplated using Burt’s bees hypoallergenic cat wash, has anyone used it? I read oatmeal wasn’t good for their skin? Advice please.
