I adopted a 1-2 year old male cat about 2 months ago. I have had 3 vets from 3 different clinics look at him and all they tell me is that he might have allergies. I am wondering if any one as other advise or has seen something simular.

1) He has red/maroon eye gunk that harden in the corner of his eyes by his nose. This happens within a couple of hours of me cleaning them. If you look closely at his eyes, you see little red dots where our eye lids would be.

2) He pulls out hair with his teeth on his tail and around where he poops. I have seen him do this to his tail and I find clups of hair all the time. There never apears to be any bald spots though.

3) He smells like stinky feet. I have had his anal glands squized, but no change.

4) He is a short haired domestic cat and he sheds A LOT! My medium hair cat doesn't shed as much as he does! He leaves piles of hair when he moves from laying down.

He eats and drinks normally, pees and poops regularly (although, he does not bury it after going) and he is affectionate. The vet said he is negative on any internal parasites and ear mites.

My other cat exhibits none of these things.

I have started to find these "allergies" by starting with the litter. After that, I'll try changing the food if the litter doesn't work.

Thanks for any advise you can give.

Maybe it would help if you clipped or shaved near his butt area. Your cat may smell something foul around there and try to pull his hair out, who knows?
