I don't understand why you haven't taken your cat to the vets yet. If he is showing all of these symptoms there is definitely something wrong which will need treatment. treatment which only a vet can prescribe.

Hair loss can be caused by an allergy or a parasite problem. Weight loss can be caused by many things from worms to heart problems and thyroid issues. A lump could be a tumor or it could be a swollen gland. there is simply no way of knowing for sure without a vet taking a look and possibly doing some tests.

I'm sorry if this all sounds a bit harsh but you sound genuinely worried in which case for your and your cats sake you need to go to see a vet sooner rather than later.

I hope your cats problems can be sorted out soon and that he will be back to his old self again soon.

best wishes Kate
