My Cat,Cali, has been for about 3 months losing large amounts of hair(more than usual).I find clumps of hair around the house and in chair pads...Should I take her to the vet,or can you help me,,Thank you so much,,,,Cali's Mother

Answer by Kate
losing large amounts of cat hair could be a sign of a skin complaint like ring worm or it could be a sign of stress. Please see my page here about hair loss for other possible causes but i would say that it is always worth taking the cat to the vet just so that any medical condition can be ruled out.
