I must admit to not being an expert in skin conditions, but often your right the main cause of fur loss in a cat is caused by stress and over anxious grooming. It could however be a skin allergy or reaction to a bite. Best to get it checked out by a vet first to rule out any underlying allergies etc. If nothing can be foubd then take a look at my hair loss page under cat health for some more information on this problem.
