Missing fur with skin thingies sticking out...

I just noticed today that my cat is missing two patches of fur on its belly and these small skin thingies that look like little baby fingers are sticking out of them....Ick!!!

Answer by KAte
well from your discription it could be that your cat has ticks on him. they can look like small grey fingers. they are probably causing the fur loss too as they will be uncomfortable for your cat.

You must take him to the vets as soon as possible so that the ticks can be removed, they can cause infections sometimes. Your vet will also be able to advise about the fur lose too.
