Another common medical problem in cats is itchy skin. Cats will get itchy skin for a number of reasons, first of which is probably fleas. And you’ll know that they have itchy skin because when you scratch them they help you. They have this little scratch reflex where their foot starts going like that. And sometimes if you scratch them over here, then they’ll lift their tail or they’ll really push against your fur. That’s another sign that they’re very itchy. Push against your fingers there. There’s a little skin spot.
