Ok, if you are a cat lover....and I know some... consider yourself warned..there is a picture here of a cat with an allergy that may bother you. If you are a parent of a child who suffered from allergies you may have seen something like this already on a baby minus the fur. :(

This is so sad. I would be at the emergency vet in a hurry if one of my cats ever looked like this. I am happy the cat is now getting treatment and will go home to a family who will give it the care it needs.

My cat would get this behind his ears from scratching. When we first got him the pet store thought he had mites in his ears. He also drank water like crazy-poor thing, he probably had an itchy mouth!

We changed his diet to remove protein from large animals (the vet suspected this) and it cleared right up.

Animals can have allergies, too.
