Cat with bald spots on tail and back of hind legs

Hair lose on tail and back
I have a 5 year old cat who all of a sudden started losing hair on her tail and the back of her hind legs. I have not changed anything in the house and she does not go outside. She doesn't have fleas could this still be a parasite?? I have another cat and a small beagle in the house but both are fine and showing no signs of anything. If it was a parasite wouldn't they have caught this to after a week of it??? I have also heard that it could be an emotional thing due to her not being spayed yet. Is that true??? Here is a picture of her hair loss..

There are many causes of fur lose (see my page here about it http://www.our-happy-cat.com/cat-hair-loss.html) and yes stress can be a cuse but the best thing to do is to get her checked by a vet to rule out any skin allergies or conditions first. At least that way you know if you are dealing with a physical or emotional problem.
The fur loss doues look rather nasty, I would get it checked as soon as possible.
best wishes Kate
