Remember Your Beloved Pet
Kitty with bald spots
BellaAmbra posted:
I adopted a cat from a private home and we have had her for over a month. I noticed two days ago that she was losing her hair on her back on the left side. I did not see any crusty patches or irritation it was just bald. My daughter woke up this morning to patches of fur on the floor. The cat is now losing the hair in the same place on the right side. Again there is no crusty patches under the hair or irritation. I was wondering if this could be an allergy to the food we changed her to. We just finished completely transferring her to the new food after gradually adding it to her other food. Please help me with my balding kitty!!!
