12.10 My cat has stopped grooming itself

There can be various reasons explaining why your cat isn’t grooming itself anymore. Its back may be hurt, it may indicate a behavioural problem, or it may be simply going through a rough patch.

You can wash it with a dry shampoo but keep in mind that in any case it is best to talk about it with your veterinarian. Do remember that this could be your cat showing you it is currently unhappy.
