My cat is going bald.

Hi, my names maria and i have a 9 year old tabby cat. Shes very happy, alwayds friendly with everyone and is in very good shape. Recently, i have been noticing that on her lower back near her tail, and a small bit of her tail has been going bald. It is not completely bald, but you can tell my just looking at her that there is not a lot of fur there. She leaves HUGE clumps of hair on our carpet everyday. We havent changed her food, and we havent really changed anything weve done with her. Shes not sick, because shes still very active and still very happy, but this balding is sarting to worry me. If you have have any kind of suggestions that would be awesome! thank you!
