Feline Hyperesthesia Syndrome a condition that affects cats (FHS)
Feline hyperesthesia syndrome (FHS) is a rare reason for a cat to act strangely, affecting mostly older cats and with no recognized cause.
If you see any of the following, talk to your veterinarian about the possibility of FHS:
- While your cat is running around, the skin on its back looks to be rippling.
- Even after you’ve treated your cat form fleas, it bites at its back above its tail on a regular basis.
- Petting your cat’s tail or back causes it to groom, scratch, or bite the region excessively before running around the house crazily.
