Hi Melrai

A couple of additional pieces of info might be useful.
- Does this cat goes outdoors
- How long has the cat been eating Raw, and exactly what is the cat getting? (There are a bunch of smart Raw food feeders on our forum)
- Is the cat pooping and peeing normally?
- How long has it been since you noticed the thinning and scabbing?

Some cats can be food-fussy one day and normal the next. My rule of thumb is 24 hours. After that the vet gets a call and a likely visit.

It IS a good sign that your cat ate a bit last night...

In terms of the thinning hair and scabs - that is concerning (it could be stress related but it could also be related to something else) and if this were my cat, a vet would be examining this at the next available opportunity.
