Answer by Kate

There are several possible causes for your cats fur loss. Please see this page for more information this

I think it would be a good idea to take her to th vets to have her skin looked at and perhaps some tests to be carried out. the weight loss may be connected as she may be anxious due to her itchiness.

Hope you can find the cause soon

best wishes Kate
