LOL I totally did the same thing too, at first. I was reading and I though, hmm, Ralph has a siamese cat, and then I noticed that it wasn't Ralph!

Hee hee....I just have to butt in here - nothing to add about your cat (except that I'm sorry you're poor kitty's doing this to herself!), but Beth - that wasn't Ralph that posted about OCD above - it was Hannah_phi. You do EXACTLY what I do! Ralph has same avatar, so you assumed it was Ralph! I do this ALL the time!
My sister's cat was pulling its hair out/over-grooming for a while, and it turned out to be fleas. I too think that this sort of thing is really common as an allergy or flea reaction, and the vet can probably give you something to help. My cat doesn't do this, but she is getting older (10 now) and I've noticed that she's started picking up some new, weird habits, like biting. She's NEVER been a biter, but now she is, sometimes! At least she doesn't bite down hard--she just lets you feel her teeth. But it's surprisig, as she's never done this before!
