I have two british shorthair cats. A chocolate tortie point (Gwen) and a Blue (Lancelot, picture on pics section!)

I have noticed that Gwen is always accumulating food etc under her chin. I usually rub this out with my finger however I`m sure hair is coming out with it! Does anyone have a better way of removing it?

Pictures of Gwen and Lancelot can be seen on my website under my profile section.

Are you sure what you are seeing is not cat acne?

It can look a bit like flea dirt, sometimes in a scab form. It can some what be scratched off the chin.

This is an area prone to acne, specially if you feed your cats out of a plastic dish. Stainless Steel and Ceramic bowls/plates are the best because you can actually clean them, while plastics are too porous, so any old food and dirt never fully washes away, and a cats chin will come in contact with this every meal time.

its definitely food and remnats of where she has cleaned herself.

We always use stainless steel anyway. I have about twenty bowls of various different sizes in the house. I can just about fit them all into one dishwasher load.
