My Sam has a baldish spot, very short fur, from his lowest nipples to anal area, on his lower belly, as if he had been pulling hair out, since this summer. He is an indoor-outdoor cat, so I thought it might be fastidious cleaning to prevent pests-fleas, ticks-even though we use Frontline, as needed, once I detect pests on him (he hates the Frontline). The baldish spot had seemed to be growing back, but now it's shorn shorter again; maybe he's bored? It thought he would let it grow longer once it was colder when he was going outside, but it got so cold so fast that he doesn't linger much.
I've known a couple of friends' cats who had this, both eventually pulling out all the hair on their bellies, and I always thought it was a nervous condition.
Any thoughts or experience?
There is no waste, only wasted resources.
