    Today i noticed that my baby luna has some weird bumps on her skin. They're located on her armpit area. She also seems to have some kind of sore on her ear, has anyone ever had this on their babies? Should i be worried? I know i can be a little overprotective about them. Her behaviour is the same, i can touch the bumps and they dont seem to hurt, she doest seem to be scratching or biting them either. At first I thoughy her ear were mites, but her ears are perfectly clean. I barely have to clean them. IMG-20180503-WA0016.jpg IMG-20180503-WA0015.jpg

      @Dutchess I wanted to start with the question if summer kicked in at your place already but then I realised you're living in the Netherlands just like me. So guess not:).
      Being under the armpits it could be a heat rash...maybe from the radiator?
      Did you bath her recently? Maybe a rash by the shampoo? My boy Ross always has this rash for a day or so after I bathed him. And my boy Toa gets a rash like that when he's getting dirty and really needs a bath!

      Hopefully ohters chime in also.

          The food was changed weeks ago, very gradually, so i dont suspect that thats the problem. I do have some new houseplants and she is due for a bath, so maybe thats the problem. We dont have standard radiators, just some air conditioning like machine that also blows warm air. My other sphynxbaby doesnt have any problems at all. I'll give her a bath, with a different shampoo. See if that helps. What shampoo do you guys use?

          I have tried putting shirts on them, but so far they just stop moving and play dead, or try to get out and get stuck. So that still needs some work. I do want to teach them to wear shirts, Luna constantly wants to go outside and i want to give her the ability to do so safely (once it stops raining....) with a shirt or sweater

            Are those bumps in area she can scratch? When my cat scratches too much she gets an open wound. Those other bumps look like maybe from heat. My cat gets those every now and then but then they seem to go away on their own.

            If you have new plants google them to see if they are safe for cats. Last week I bought a new plant at intratuin (you'll probably now this shop). A few days later my boy Toa has a bad rash on his body. I got rid of the plant and the rash has gone!

            And yeah! The sun is shining. Outdoor time:)

              Thanks for all the responses! They seem to have completely disappeared on their own and havent come back! I'll keep an eye out for if they come back
