Hi All.
Our cat Honey has developed some scabs on the back of her neck ...


It looks like a scratch? There's another underneath if you look closely. But she's the only cat in the house and rarely goes out so wondering what she's could have scratched herself on!

I did a google search and it suggested dermatitis, which has many causes, but not sure if I'm just over reacting to a scratch?

We've taken her collar off in case that was irritating her.

Any opinions would be appreciated!

The collar is likely the culprit. Leave it off and see if this clears up with no other scratches appearing. I really don't see the need of a collar....is it because the cat goes outside and the ID is on it? Having the cat microchipped is a better ID, especially for a brown tabby as identification is more difficult because it's a common color.

Yeah it seems to be healing up nicely now after leaving her collar off for several days.
She does have a little tag with our phone number on but she is also microchipped ... I think I'm just going to leave it off and see how she goes.

Thanks for your reply :)
