my cat lickes his self in spots until his hair is gone down to his skin

Answer by Kate
this could either me a skin condition which is irritating him or it could be what is know as over grroming which is caused by stress.

Please see my page about the problem here it will help you to understand the problem more but really you will need to get him to a vet to diagnose the problem properly.

Best wishes and a happy new year.
