    I noticed on Maisy la week or so ago that she had some little sore bits on her chest, and one under her front leg. My oh looked and said it was from fighting.

    But today she came in (they don't usually spend much time inside) and she has got more. They are little red patches, with wee scabs on that is stuck to the fur so when she scratches they come off.

    They are only on her tummy and under her front legs, what do you think they could be??

    I am going to have to ask next door for a lift to the vets because I am out tomorrow all day with my sister and OH works all week, and Maisy hates to travel but at least in next doors car I can strap her carrier in.

    She doesn't seem to be uncomfortable, and will quite happily lie on her back for me to have a look.

    Sounds like some kind of bug to me, ticks or mites?!! Easy to pick something up from outside and makes sense if its her legs and chest basically the bits that some into contact with the most minging stuff.
