Trichotillomania by proxy
Hello! I'm new here and this is my first time posting. I found this group with the hope that I can gain insights to help my 15-yr-old daughter who not only pulls her own hair but also the fur, whiskers and eyebrows of our 3 cats. She pulls the cat hair that is "the wrong color" and does much damage to our poor cats' faces! Her therapist almost reported her for animal abuse. Therapy didn't seem to work for my daughter nor did trying to replace the behavior. Punishment didn't work. Rewards didn't work. She is tearing our family apart because we are all so angry that she abuses our cats, but we don't want to get rid of them either. What can we do to help her overcome this behavior? Nothing we try seems to help so I figured I would come to the experts here on this support group. Any advice is appreciated!

Can see the new hair growth. I am wearing a wig right now because the pulling got so bad. Will be a while till my hair grows back but I am hopeful and believe it will happen. Have a new expensive wig,...
