My 1st pet and Cat recently got a bloated lower lip. The fur in that area are gone (about 1 cm wide and 3 mm in height). What can be causing this. Anyone? It's been about a week now since the lip started to grow. See picture of poor mr. Noodles at:
Thankyou so much for your kind help.

One of my cats had the same,although not quiet as bad,so don't take ,my word for it,I am not a vet,just a 3-cat owner.
It is usually allergies to plastic dishes,something that should not be used,
Stainless or porcelain is the safest and best.
Your cat looks bad enough for a vet-visit,maybe it's a bite from another cat:confused: in which case it needs treatment.Good Luck!
