lately my black cat fur is comming out in different parts of the body he's almost bold and hes getting skinny and scratching alot what is it. but heres the thing I have five cats all together and there fine, but they are all outside cats, its only midnight thats having the problem.

Answer by Kate
Please take your cat to the vets as soon as possible. it is impossible to say what the exactly the problem is, there are so mnay possibilities. But with the fur loss and and the weight loss there is defiinately something terribly wrong. It may be something that can be easily treated, so please do not delay.

Hormone inbalances including thyroid issues could be part of the cause, this is treatable.

I hope something can be done for him soon.

best wishes kate
