Venus turned 18 in January so she's not a young cat. We've noticed that there are small clumps of fur, generally around her upper chest, that are coming out all at once. We'll notice a clump sticking out farther than the rest of her fur and when we give it a gentle tug, it comes out in a bunch. It's not leaving a bald spot, you can't even tell the fur is gone, but neither of us can remember her shedding her winter coat in this way before.
Is this a cause for concern or might it just be that the upper chest is difficult for her to clean now?
Her annual checkup is in the end of April/beginning of May so I was going to ask her vet then anyway.
