Milo is an orange and white tabby, neutered, and 4 years old. He is a VERY affectionate cat. He loves licking me....all...the....time. He's always been skitish when it comes to loud noises, and has been known to hide behind things and "attack" when you walk around the corner. He is the type of cat that won't use his litterbox if it's been "used" more than 3 times. Well, recently, he's been refusing to use it if there is ONE poop in there. He'll poop in the hallway that the litterbox is in, but not in the litterbox. I woke up this morning to smell urine, and it seems as if he peed somewhere in the living room. I had just changed his litterbox last night - there was no reason for him not to use it. Also, he has always liked chasing his tail, but it has gotten to be where he is chasing it for about 2 hours a day - on and off. And one last thing - (sorry)....he has a bald spot (okay, his entire right side). We took him to the vet, and they gave him a steroid shot just in case it was a rash. Well, he still licks and licks it. The licking is constant. Now, he licks his paws and legs too. I've taken him to the vet about all this, and they've pretty much blown me off. I'm worried that something is really wrong with him. All of these changes happened within the past 4 months. Sorry to bombard you all with so many questions - I'm just worried about my kitty. Thanks in advance for your replies.
