my girl blue russian cat losing small areas of hair everywhere, her behavior is fine help

As it is near the ear on the picture i am wondering if it could be ear mites.

They can crawl out of the ear and cause irritation around the head causing your cat to scratch. I have more on ear mites on my page here

However if she is losing fur on other parts of her body too it may be caused my another parasite or even an allergy. Please see my page about cat fur loss here

Hair Loss
by: Anonymous

Our girl is 9 years old and ahes got the same issue around her eyes. Ears are fine. I havent bathed her in quite a while but the diet did change to a senior diet but same brand. Not sure if that caused it. One time in the past she lost a bunch of hair around her butt because of a change in litter but it grew back after we stopped using it.

Worried our Blur Russian Kitten is losing haor
by: Janifer

I am seeing these pictures and comments and am starting to wonder if this is a common trait for this breed. I have a male Blur Russian kitten not even 6 months old and he is losing his hair around the eyes and ears. I am so worried. He is such a sweet little guy. I guess it's vet time :(

found cause
by: ashleys mommy

It turns out she suffers from obsesive compulsive disorder, OCD. We have bought an all natural pheramone collar that resembles the feeling she would get when she was a kitten and being comfoted by her mother. Hair has come back and she's been doing great. She was scratching her ears while my husband and I were gone durring the day, she was also chewing off her front leg hair. the collar works great, and its good for her being all natural. we bought it at tre bone a local health food store for pets.

good luck

The vet we go to says that with this shampoo we use it doesnt matter how often we bathe her with it its a dermilite shampoo made for cats and her skin is not dry at all. she is silky and smoothe. the vet says she is not dry at all. Yesterday though she has started to chew on her front legs and has given herself two blad spots one per leg. There is no redness & no dryness. I have started her on organic pet superfood made in the USA skin and coat daily pet supplement. I hope this helps. Also about the batheing we have been doing it since she was 6weeks old and never had this issue before and yes i know her body is changing so maybe its different now but the vet said this shouldnt be causing it no matter how often she is bathed. thankyou

my russian blue female is having the same issue
by: kala

My baby Ashley is just over 1 year in age, she is a stricktly indoor cat who has never been outside since she was 6 weeks old. She has reccently statred to lose hair on her ears. She isnt around any other animals. She is spayed. The pictures are almost identical. Her ears are cleaned regulary and she never has any build up. She is bathed once a week. There has been no scratching. She eats a combo of wet canned food and raw food that has no wheat, corn or soy it is all organic and natural with no persevitives so im sure its not a food allergy. She has been eating this food since she was a baby and never had any problems before.Nothing has changed in the household with my husband and I or in the house, i dont think its stress. Im sure its not mange shes not exposed to any other animals so how could it be?Did you find out anything from a vet as to what has caused this ear baldness?

It may have something to do with the fact that you bath her every week. Bathing should only be necessary when they get something particularly nasty on their fur or I suppose if they are to be shown.

Bathing can dry out the skin and as the ears are particularly sensitive this could be why they are the worst affected.

Perhaps stop bathing her so regularly and also give her a supplement to help with fur and skin condition to see if this helps.
