Hi It sounds to me like she may be over grooming. This is caused by anxiety and can lead to loss of fur.

Unfortunately it can sometimes be difficult for us to know the cause of our cats anxiety. Also some cats are just more nervous naturally.

i have a web page which may be of further help for you here

best wishes Kate
