My cat has been itching and she now has scabs down her spine from neck to tail. She doesn't go out very much. Anyone know what it is or how to treat it?

It could be quite a few things. You should take her to the vet as soon as possible. She could have developed an allergy to something. Maybe a type of food, or maybe if you are using some new kind of cleaning solution to clean your house.

When I first got Maks he had Feline Scabies, which is like mange in dogs. He was itchy, and he had like little scabs on his skin. I have no idea how he caught it, but they had to give him dip treatments. He's fine now and you would never know he had it.

But please take her to the vet so that she can be checked out.
