Can a cat be allergic to another cat?


Posted by PWilbert

my hairless cat was diagnosed with as-ma, however he seems to have irritated bumps that appear and dissappear on his neck. When he plays with his big brother, can this be caused by rough plasy and that he is possible allergic to another ca (His bigger brother)

Generally speaking, a species of animal will not show signs of an allergy to another of its own species.  However, if the other cat had been bathed with something that is allergenic to the first cat, then you might see some involvement after they've been together.

What you are seeing is more likely to be from some other cause.
