Stress Can Cause Overgrooming

Wednesday, March 24, 2021
posted by Jim Murphy

If your cat constantly grooms himself and you have ruled any possible medical conditions, it could be stress. This is sometimes caused when you move to a new location, introduce a new pet or have company stay with you for an extended period of time. You can help with this condition by doing things that your cat enjoys like cuddling or petting him, playing with familiar toys or by giving him his favorite treat. If you’ve just moved, you can guarantee that this will cause your cat some stress and it may take time for him to adjust to his new surroundings. As soon as you move in, show your cat where his favorite things are like his bed, food and kitty litter. Give him as much attention as you can and before you know it, he will be well adjusted to his new surroundings.

Always have your vet check your cat out to rule out any medical conditions  that may cause him to clean himself all the time.

Remember, your pet count!
