My 6 year old Siamese is losing hair on his tail...

Like the subject says, he is losing hair on his tail. It started at the very tip of his tail and now it is slowly working its way to the base of his body. The hair loss is in a stripe-like pattern and it is worrying my wife a great deal.

I was hoping I could get a little insight as to what he may have. He eats regularly, makes a little less noise than usual and plays with our other 1 year-old cat.

Thank you, ahead of time, for any info.

Hmmm, there's so many reassons an animal can lose hair, it's impossible to tell. Your vet really is the only person who could dignose it accurately.

Here's a great cat health index. You can look up hair loss or skin problems, maybe you'll get an idea - but really a vet visit is the only way to know for sure. Good luck with him!
