Did Your Cat Stop Grooming?

catgroomingCats sometimes look like contortionists when they clean themselves with their tongue, teeth, paws and claws. Grooming takes lots of energy. If you notice that your cat has stopped grooming herself, this could indicate that she is sick or in pain. If she is drooling or not not eating her cat food she could have diseased teeth and gums, something stuck in her mouth or even an oral tumor. If your cat is older and has arthritis, this could make all of the twisting and turning with grooming too painful. You may even notice that she’s not playing with that box of cat toys anymore. Overweight cats can also have a hard time grooming those hard to reach spots. Sometimes they will stop grooming themselves if there’s an emotional problem. Take her to the vet to determine why you cat has stopped cleaning herself. Your veterinarian will give her a thorough examination and maybe even give her some pet medication if necessary.
