James was not pleased.
Cottage Tails Farm Stay Guests...
Fred is looking most embarrassed for this photo shoot - exposing his little habit for all the world to see.
Fred over grooms - he pulls out his fur around his tummy, it's just something he does. Our cat Laura (not related to Fred, Fred is Lordy's brother) used to over groom every time she had kittens. The boredom (we think) of having to lie still and let the kittens feed would always start the habit. The vet thought it could be hormones with her too. Now she is retired she no longer over grooms.
I am not a vet and you should always check any concerns with your vet as Fred's family has done. Fred is happy, relaxed and not a nervy cat at all. Nor is our Laura. The over licking seems to become a habit - a bit like twisting ones hair or biting fingernails in humans.
Bach Crab Apple it may just help with his over grooming - wouldn't it be wonderful if he can go home with this little habit broken. Just two drops in his water morning and night and by placing a few drops on Fred's head which I gently rub in around his crown of his head and around his ears. Ooh la la most cats enjoy this little massage.
Fred is being a dream guest and talks nicely to Beau and Sienna
