cat covered in bites and scabs...

He is a neutered tom but loves a good scrap with the neighbourhood moggies. He has a lot of bites around his neck and jaw, and a bald patch on one leg. He seems happy enough but should I take him to vet or just leave him be.
If I scratch his itchy scabby bits he becomes a drooling wreck Grin

mines covered in scabs around his ears too. Do you have a massive B&W Tom? Maybe your cat is my cats new nemesis.

No he's a massive stripey tabby with a white bib. The stupidest, softest, cuddliest boy ever at home but seems to be some sort of pyscho cat once he gets outside!

Nope that doesn't match the description of any of the cats fluffy cat has scrapped with here.

I don't know, if they seem ok it's probably nothing to worry about. Is he licking the leg bald? That sounds like a vets trip.

Mine is the same - seemingly a big coward,,but comes home with slightly shredded ears and scabs on face and neck. Bloody idiot!

Lol. You would know him if you saw him. Beautiful markings and mahoosive. Biggest cat we've ever had. The bald leg is a new thing. Looks almost as if it had been shaved in a very small patch. There is a wet looking wound in the bald patch. I will keep an eye on it I think. He is currently upside down on my lap, legs and arms akimbo having his furry white tummy scratched. Scary, much?

No one believes us that fluffycat is a love bug either Sad.

Saltwater might help.
