    Hi, hopefully someone could help with this!
    Recently our 15 year old female cat (strictly indoor) has started biting and scratching at the base of her tail. This is now red, bleeding and weeping!

    we can’t see any fleas on her and I can’t imagine her having any as she’s indoor - has anyone else experienced something similar? I have attached a picture

    I would just her to the vet ASAP - she is clearly uncomfortable and/or irritated, the skin looks inflamed and could get infected.
