my cat is loosing hair rapidly. His stomach, now above his tail-lower back, his thighs, and oddly two spots just between his shoulder blades. He is excessively licking and scratching but no fleas? what is it:confused:

could be a food allergy or dermatitis. my one cat gets dermatitis and the vet said it could be a flea allergy or food allergy or even an environmenal allergy. worth talking to the vet about,

In one of my cats it was stress-related after having to put up with a new kitten,he's fine now,a lotion from the vet made him leave it alone and the hair is back.
Many cats are easily stressed and excessive licking is one of the signs,if fleas,allergys etc..has been ruled out.
