He doesn't seem to be overly itchy. It actually doesn't seem to bother him at all. How would he have gotten mites? All my cats are indoors. I've had him for over a year now and he was much sicker when I first got him. He seems to be healthy now. I was also watching him play last night and it appears his brother likes to bop him on the head. Could that be it?
