my cat has lost his voice and keeps coming home minus fur!
Hi, I am new to this forum and would like some advice as to whether what is happening to my cat is normal?
Yoda is a 2 year old ginger and white Tom, He is a normal healthy cat who goes outside during the day and recently he has been known to stay out all night and when he comes home in the morning he sleeps all day.
I know that as he is a Tom there will be a time of year when he will go off and try to find the female cats in the area however over the last 2 weeks everytime he comes home there are bald patches around the back of his neck and sometimes around the top of his front legs. in the beginning there where small amounts of blood in the area where the fur had gone from but now there isnt, just bald patches below where his collar sits and the patches are getting bigger.
Another problem is that he seems to have lost his full Miaow, whether it is a coinsidence with loosing his fur im not sure but his miaow has gone from a healthy, strong, tune-full one to only a weak pittyful miaow, that is not how it should be. im wondering is this all normal for Tom cats or should i take him to the vets?
any suggestions or advice please
