Hey everyone, I have a puzzeling problem I hope you'll know the answer to. Ok, we have a silver/gray cat that we found as a kitten as a stray about...maybe a year ago? A few weeks ago (bare in mind I'm not very good at keeping track of time, so it could've been shorter or longer) I noticed that he had a wound on the back of his neck. Nothing to worry about He'd had that exact type of would before as did my older cat, so I figured it would heal in a couple weeks. About a week after he first got it I noticed that some of the fur around it between his shoulders was gone and he had another smaller wound of the same kind almost healed already. No biggy I thought, I just hadn't noticed it because you really only notice it if you look hard and pull his fur away from it. I kept on eye on his wounds, which have been almost healed for about a week now, and today I've noticed his fur is getting really short in several patches around his body. His fur is not gone and it's not like he's just shedding. The fur he has in the patches are like stubble, mostly on his legs and on his sides. I haven't really checked him lately, so this might have been going on the the last few days, but both my mom and I agree that it isn't normal shedding and it's strange. None of our three other cats have this problem. It might be helpful to note that when he got the wound I was already a month behind on flea meds and since I do all the animals at once I haven't put the meds on them yet, so I'm about 2 months behind. The cat sleeps in my room and I haven't noticed any fleas, in fact I have yet to see one. My two cats are inside only but my sisters two cats are allowed outside sometimes. Unfortunatly I can't take pics of it. What could this be? Edited to add: I just talked to one of my brothers who says he's noticed small lines of short fur on Bat (the cat) shortly before the first wound. UPDATE pg 2.
