Im pregnant and my cat is losing his fur

by Yasmin

Im pregnant and my cat has acted differently ever since. At first he wouldnt come anywhere near me. Recently (Im due to give birth in six weeks) he has been very clingly and miaowing alot for attention.

For the last two or three months he has been missing patches of fur. Just randomly and out the blue. Not cuts or grazes that we can see. Our other cat is fine. They are both indoor cats as the are Bengal cats.

Is it possible the fur loss is due to stress of us having a baby?

Answer from Kate
Hi yes it could be caused by anxiety and this can lead to over grooming which causes fur loss.

There are things you can give your cat to try and calm them down for a shot while. Please see this page for more information on anxious cats
