My cat has been ripping her hair out excessively over the past two months. She doesn't have flease or ticks. This started when we moved... Could it be stress related or could it be an allergy to something in this new house?

Once I heard this story about this brave mother kitty and there was a fire and usually mother kittys leave their kittens when theres danger but this mother was carring them out one by one but when she carried all of them out she got stuck in the flaming building but fire men saved her, she was really hurt so they took her and her kittens to the hospital and people began writing to take her and her kittens in a good home. Soon her kittens were all given away and a writter got her, this writter already had a cat once and this cat lived up to 25 years thats soooo long!

How cats came to Cyprus:

There were many snakes in Cyprus so traders brought cats from Egypt they lived in the monastrys and chuches. They were very clever when the bell rang they went to hunt and when the bell rang again they came back to eat. They ate wet spageti with bread! But when the Turks invaded they killed the monks and the cats ran away and scatered around the whole island and there became very many of them they became very common and now most are stray.
