hi and welcome to our cat community.
this complaint is unfortunately very common, I will include a link to other posts that perhaps will give you some additional answers...

first I'm wondering if your kitty is an indoor/outdoor kitty? and thus uses litter only while in more during the winter?....typically when they bite alot  back by the hind legs its an allergy to something thats coming incontact with that part of the body...such as litter.
What type of litter are you using?....if its perfumed stop using that type and switch to plain.
if its already plain, try going to a more natural material such as paper pellets or wood chips....caution many litters that claim to be natural, aren't...even corn is full of chemcials..but worth a try too..keep switching and see what happens.

good luck, post anytime if we can be of further help to poor kitty, can you imagine how horrible a skin itch can be♥
