Cat allergies: Feline Pine?
Lately MrWendel has been acting a bit sluggish, and occasionally dry heaving(hairball?). He's also started licking everything in sight, walls cabinets, cardboard boxes, everything. Just now, he threw up a little. There have been two major changes in the last couple weeks. First I built him some new furniture. A scratching post, and a two level scratcher. Both with sisal(pics are in meet my kitty). The other is that I got fed up with Arm and Hammer "easy flush" clogging my toilet, so I switched to feline pine and now feline pine scoopable(I messed up the first time and thought that feline pine WAS scoopable).
I'm wondering if either of these is causing him to get sick. He had a URI about 6 months ago when I got him, but since then he's been perfectly healthy. Oh, he also has stopped eating his wet food as eagerly. He still eats some of it, but sometimes leaves it for a while or doesn't finish. The food is the same Merrick that I've always fed him and he used to eat it immediately. This actually started before the introduction of the posts and litter.
Any ideas? If it does appear to be allergies, is there any way I can figure out what he's allergic to?
Thanks for any help.
