So glad it was only fleas! That's so treatable! (the two cats I have now haven't had fleas -- they are strictly indoor too, but the cat I had before them got fleas once in a while and she was indoor as well. I guess they rode in on my pant cuffs or something.

OK, just wanted to report back... it was fleas!! Not 100% certain how that happened as both cats are totally indoor only, but whatever. She got a steriod shot for the itching and both cats got meds for the fleas and worms and we are putting them back on Revolution.

I was so proud of them - they were SO well behaved and totally docile at the vet!

Talk to your vet for suggestions on something nontoxic you can rub on his nipples - something not tasty could help.

My 4 kitties: Casandra, Esmeralda (Ezzie), Casanova, and Venus send good feline energy your way. I hope it is easily treatable!

We often see this at the shelter where I volunteer, it's often due to over grooming. Good luck at the vet & let us know the outcome emoticon

It is always good to get them checked out when something is different. If she is eating etc.. normally then it could be anything from an allergy to false pregnancy.

Make sure to update us. emoticon to Baby Girl

I already have a vet appointment for her, but I am REALLY worried. My little girl has this area on her belly, where her teats are, that is now very prominent and hairless. Her behavior is fine - she is eating, drinking and playing normally, and the area is not sensitive at all, but I am scared that something is very wrong with her.

She is 5 and was spayed when we got her from the shelter at 4-ish months.

Anyone know what this could be?
