Our kitty is an indoor kitty, but he does escape. When he does, his tummy gets all irritated and he loses his fur. He did escape again tonight and dived under the shed. Once we got him back into the house, he started licking himself like crazy! I took one of the Burt's Bees dander reducing wipes and rubbed his tummy, which was dirtier than I expected and he stop licking immediately! So far so good.
