Chewing his foot?!

4521 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Tasha
I was watching Henry the other night doing his usual ritual of 'enjoying himself'! When i looked closer though i noticed that he would alternate to chewing and what looks like cleaning one of his legs. He would then lick himself near the same leg, then go back to leg again. It was only the one leg he would chew on though.

Is this normal or is something wrong? Im booking him into the vets on monday to get one of his ears checked out (its got a small white patch on it and looks a bit 'lumpy'. The other ear is fine), could it be related?

Seems like a good idea to have the ear checked out.

As for the foot thing, mine sucks & nibbles at her feet too. It's ever so cute. Sometimes, while she's doing that, I hold her foot with the tip of my finger and she sucks on my finger for a little bit too ;)
