Bug Under My Cats Skin

by Cierra Spadafora
(Palm Beach Gardens, Florida,USA)

My Russian blue cat has a bug underneath its skin. I am really worried and concerned why there would be a bug under his thick skin!

It is about a quarter of an inch long and is wiggling around under his skin like it's searching for something. It's horrible!

What's worse is my cat has been licking and srcatching itself so much that his fur is starting to fall off!!!

I live In Florida, summer has just started here and my other cat (Tiger-orange tabby) got scabies!

So now my other cat has a weird bug under it's skin and he's tearing himself up over it, literally. Can you help me identify what the heck this is, please?

Hi Cierra,

I've never had cats and don't know much about their particular type of care. It sounds like they may need to be de-wormed, for starters. The bug under the skin may be the from worms or mites.

Since both of your cats are having skin/parasite issues, you may want to have them both checked out by a vet.

Another option is to get the book Veterinary Secrets Revealed and see what you can do yourself with things you have on hand at home. It's in pdf format so you can download the information right away and put it to use immediately.

I have a friend who is a real cat lover. She was caring for a very sickly cat recently that had a terrible case of mange (losing hair, etc.). She used basic ingredients that most people have on hand and her little kitty is doing brilliantly now.

Hope this may help you in dealing with the bug under your cats skin and the other issues, too. Do let me know if you follow their advice and if it does/doesn't work. Another opinion is always welcome.

Kind regards,

Really Anonymous? (can't even gripe using your own name)

Perhaps I feel I have the right to answer Cierra's question because this is MY website and she asked ME the question. :)

Would you have considered it better form for me to ignore her completely or perhaps "pretend" I knew more about the topic than I really do?

That's not how I work. If I don't know, I'm not afraid to say so. I do make an effort to seek a viable solution, as I did in this case, by finding and referring my visitors to a source of reliable information if possible.

I'm sorry you feel the need to visit my site and make derogatory comments just for the sake of it.

Maybe you should have read your own words and taken them to heart, "Rule of thumb: If you have no clue what you're talking about, keep quite. Opinions are like.... well, you know the rest." :)

Why would you post a comment when you a) have never had a cat and b) you know nothing about what you're writing? This person wants opinions from somebody that knows what they are talking about, not somebody that just wants to post because they have an opinion or best guesstimate on what's going on with a persons pet.
