I'm happy your kitty is happy:) A friend had a similar problem & used the light ACV rub with success. Apparently it also clears up itches, slight infections etc. My cat is so happy. He like to climb on my lap even though he sometimes gets the ACV rub. I think he's more comfortable now.
Hi: I like the ACV usage. I just wanted to add that one of my cats was licking and pulling her hair out and getting naked! So I had my daughter give her a bath once a week for 3 weeks. She stopped pulling her hair out and seemed extra happy after a bath. We used Sulfodene Shampoo.
I'm only light years away from my goal, or so it seems. After all we're not mapping the secrets of the universe.
I may have to give this a try. We have one cat that has a serious hair loss problem. He has been to the vet many times and no one has a diagnosis for him. He licks himself non stop and picks off all the hair around his back, legs and bottom, even his belly
As far as weight loss goes...don't bother. I've tried it for years with no result. I would drink it in water first thing in the morning for a long time and never saw any benefit. Well, I'll take that back. I have these wart-like skin lesions and they got much smaller when i was using the ACV.

I don't bath my cats. I do just put it on my hand & give them a back rub. Sometimes I'll also use a wire hair bush to help spread it into their hair. They seem to be OK with this. They like the attention & laptime.
Thought I'd pass this along. I've used ACV on my Sasquatch for his dandruff. Works well. I posted the info on some cat lists & have had feedback from several folks that it's worked for their cats also. Did some more research & got lots of positive info.
~~~~ ACV info
Did a quick google on apple cider vinegar benefits cats. Got lots of info back
