  • Some cats have a very strange disorder called hyperesthesia, also known as rippling skin syndrome or twitchy cat syndrome
  • In hyperesthesia, the skin on the back ripples from the shoulders all the way to the tail, and triggers a range of odd sensations and behaviors in the cat
  • In order to confirm a diagnosis of hyperesthesia, all disorders with similar symptoms must be ruled out
  • The first thing you should do for a kitty with hyperesthesia is feed a clean, nutritionally balanced, species-appropriate, carbohydrate-free diet
  • It’s also important to minimize all forms of stress in your cat’s lifestyle and environment, along with beneficial natural remedies and therapies, including chiropractic care
