I agree. Stress in cats leads to hyper-grooming. If there's a change in routine or other cats are around....or just about anything...a sensitive cat will pick up on it. Cats need their own "shrinks".

I agree with the previous post. There are many reasons why cats lose their fur. It is a good idea to have it checked. Usually such things can be taken care of with a minimum of effort. emoticon

Stress could be the cause. One of my kitties licks herself when she is stressed and the result are bald batches. The degree of baldness varies on her stress level. When we moved house she lost a bunch of fur, but now all of her fur has returned.

I feed an outdoor kitty that is alergic to fleas and she loses fur when she gets fleas.

Good luck figuring out what the cause is!!

I will take my 1 year old cat Steve to the vet soon...when i find one I can trust (I have trust issues emoticon ). But, does anyone have any ideas about fur loss? Steve has a tough start in life. At our house, he's been healthy and living outside and happy as a clam, but he now lives inside and got two siblngs Anyway, he seems to be losing his fur, although I don't see it fall out or shed. And I don't see furballs anywhere. I thought he was stressed from moving inside and getting siblings. So, I gave him some time to adjust. The girl cat got worms (ew!) and I am treating them all. His belly is bald and tops of his inner legs, around his neck where his collar was. Any ideas? My sister thought it might be allergy (I know thyroid can cause fur loss). Thanks! emoticon

If at first you don't succeed…yeah, yeah, I know!!


20 Days until:  Beach Time!!!
