Now, this sounds like I am referring to my OWN skin being dry, but that is not the case. The dry skin I am referring to is on Power, and also on Chica.
Chica is my cat, a tuxedo cat. Power is my new greyhound, a tuxedo greyhound. They each have black fur everywhere except white chin, white chest and belly, and white feet and white tipped tail. They are identical in their markings, though they are different species, different genders, different ages.
|Power and his flaky dry skin|
The very first day I had Power, Chica walked up to Power and they stood nose to nose, smelled each other, looked each other in the eye and have been good friends ever since.
The other similarity is their dry skin. An animal with black fur shows any skin flakes. Power is really experiencing dry skin, and I am treating his with flaxseed oil served in his food. I have been advised that this is really good for him. He eats so well that it's easy to just add it to his food. Chica has other ideas. She thinks flaxseed oil makes her food uneatable. She says that dry skin is normal for cats of her aristocratic genetic background! She also says that if I continue to be bothered by it that I should just turn my head.
She says "Royal felines are perfect, I am royal, so therefore I am perfect."
