Cat losing fur?

Hi,
I hope someone can help me!My youngest cat is losing her fur but
it's just in one spot!I took my son's cat in and I'm wondering if
it's because of stress or changing their food.He more or less took
over the territory!My second oldest too is too skiny,can't put any
weight on him.Right now I am feeding them Purina!They were on
Whiskas but they were throwing up with it!Since I put them on Purina
none of them have been sick.They all seem healthy to me except for
Tabby(too skinny)and Susie(losing fur).Can't afford to take them to
a vet!

Sincerely,

Hi Janet,
Thank you for replying!She is losing it on her side!
It's just a big patch!At first I thought her and my
male got into a fight and he tore it off her!He is
very aggressive and thinks he's KING of the house!
HAHAHA!This morning I looked at it and it looks like
the fur is growing back a little,Other then that she
is a healthy cat!

Hugssssssssss,
Bev

Hi Bev :)


I am glad her fur is growing back. My male cat had a patch on his front leg that was about the size of a quarter.. that lost fur, then it grew back. I don't know what caused it.
