    I often go see the pet store people here when I have questions like this, since I'm no vet. If it's a nervous habit thing, you might be able to get her wipes or something that would soothe. Dunno if cats get them, but dogs get something called "hot spots" that's kind of the same. It's just a spot that gets irritated when they're stressed out cuz they chew on it. There's stuff designed for that, so might be something available where you are for cats.

    can still be flea allergy dermatitis even if you dont see fleas. flea allergy dermatitis basically means an allergy to flea can be caused by one single flea. (think mosquito bites in humans) would suggest flea prevention, dont know what is available in your area but something topical or a tablet will do. where im from we use tablets containing spinosad or spot ons containing imidacloprid. it is available OTC here but may only be available at vets in other countries. if itch is severe vet may suggest a short term course of corticosteroids to relieve the itchiness.

    How is kitty doing now?

    We have several long haired ones in our cat family, and occasionally they do this scooting when getting out of litter box, until we get them and help out with toilet paper and scissor to clip fur if necessary. The shorter haired cats don't seem to have this problem

    I fix homemade food recipe for them, and it keeps them really healthy overall. Along with nutritional remedies, this has cleared up even really serious health problems, which some had, as they were all abandoned or feral cats when they found us.

    Sounds like you're a wonderful meow mama
