One of my cats went through the allergy thing a month or two ago. Brought her into the vet because she was constantly itching, meowing and licking. She was obviously not happy. The vet gave her a Depo shot (not the birth control, don't know what the full name is, that is just what she told me) for skin allergies, put her on Science Diet for Sensitive Skin and now she is happy as a kitten. And I know how A LOT of people hate Science Diet, but now that it is helping with her skin and has changed her coat and attitude, I swear by this food! Hope your kitty is back to feeling better soon!

Took Pixie to the vets today, good news is it's nothing too serious. The vet checked her over thoroughly and said she has been in contact with fleas at some point since the marks on her are flea bites. She couldn't actually see any fleas on Pixie but gave some treatment for it anyway.

She said the reason it's all red and bald is that due to Pixie licking the area non-stop, she's caused damage to her own skin with her rough tongue! So she gave her a corticostoroid (sp?!) injection to stop the itching, and if that doesn't stop her from licking it, she'll be given one of those collar things to stop the licking!

So Pixie was given the treatment for fleas, as well as some for Kitty and for our dog Caspy too! Also we got some spray for around the house! Hopefully this should sort things out!

My poor baby! I was so proud of her today, she was such a good girl and all the people on the bus loved her! haha!

Just to let you'll know...the sore on Pixie has gone completely and the hair is growing back! Wow just after a couple of days on the treatment!

Thanks everyone for your advice!
