missing hair on ears

One of my cats has small patches of hair missing from the bases of her ears, anyone know what could cause this?

Could be mites? Is he scratching them? Do his ears look clean inside? Or is there black/brown stuff.

well they look clean, and she doesnt seem to scratch more than usual. I suspect I have a flea issue that I will be getting advantage for, could that be a cause?

Yes, it could be she's having a flea allergy. If you suspect fleas I think Advantage is a good place to start.

Mellie had bare spots on her ears. There's a good pic of one of the spots in the middle of the first post in this thread:

Could it also be a food allgery? Or somehow stress related?
Any changes to you cats diet or your living arrangments/lifestyle?
