If one of your family members is a short, four-legged little guy who says “meow,” you may have noticed that his skin may seem irritated from time to time. If your cat has problems that cause him to itch, or you notice that his skin is scaly and dry, he may have sensitive skin. Cats can have sensitive skin just like humans, although we don’t think about this all the time because all we see on our cats is fur. However, there are many things that can cause your cat to have irritated and dry skin. Before you rush off to the vet for an expensive visit, know that there are some things you can do to help your cat feel more comfortable and have healthier skin.

If you bathe your cat regularly, make sure you don’t bathe it with a strong shampoo. Some pet owners use flea shampoo every time they bathe their cats because they want to keep fleas away. However, there are some pretty harsh ingredients in this type of shampoo. Instead of bathing your cat in a flea shampoo, try some kind of flea collar or repellent. Replace the flea shampoo with baby shampoo, or a cat shampoo designed for sensitive skin. Kitten shampoo is normally more gentle and soothing than other types.

Another thing you can do is switch foods and see if that makes a difference. There is always the possibility that your cat is experiencing a food allergy which can dry out the skin, irritate it or make the cat itch. If you try a different food for a week and notice that your cat seems to be fine skin-wise, you may want to make a permanent switch. Sometimes this is all it takes to get your cat back to normal and to relieve the skin problems that are causing your cat to itch and irritate. But sometimes it has nothing to do with the food, and your cat simply has sensitive skin. In this case, you will find something that will help heal the skin and make your cat more comfortable.

Shea Butter is great for cats with itchy and dry skin. It is full of healthy vitamins and minerals that protect your cat’s skin and heal it. It keeps the cat’s skin moisturized and relieves itching and irritation. It is very easy to use Shea Butter for your cat. Rub it between your hands to warm it and melt it a bit, then rub it into the cat’s fur and down to the skin. Make sure you get a generous amount on the skin so that the Shea Butter will work against skin irritants. It will help get rid of the cause of your cat’s itchy skin, and it will work to make your cat more comfortable while the skin heals.

We love our cats and we hate to see them miserable. Using the tips and ideas above will really help your cat get back to normal soon. This makes for a happy cat. When the cat is happy and satisfied, so is its owner!
