my bengal cat is about a year this month and i just started noticing a couple days ago that he has some hair missing on the front top part of his right shoulder. and i also noticied today more of started spreading out and a little bald spot is right next to both of his ears. he has all his shots and i cannot figure out what could be wrong. do you think it could be fleas? maybe he;s allgeric or mange? i have no idea and im worried!

Answer by Kate
Bald patches can be a sign of a parasite or a skin allergy , it may even be a sign of stress. the trouble is without an examination by a vet it is impossible to give a definite answer.

Please see my web page about fur loss here on the site, it has more information about this issue, but it is probably fair to say that a trip to the vets should be on your priority list. Here is the page

Hope he is better soon
best wishes Kate
