Yesterday, I noticed that Dunga has a small bald spot on her back leg - it's right at the "knee" where the joint is - between upper leg and lower leg. Basically, there is only bone (the joint) - no meat or fat.

It's not a big place - I would say smaller than 1 centimeter. It's completely bald...there is no hair at all.

Why does she have this? Is she sick? I should mention that she is about 7 months old now, female cat.

thanks!

Cleo has bald patches on her hind legs too, but it sounds like they are slightly lower than on Dunga. Her patches are just below the "knee" and have become more prominent now that I take her out everyday on her leash. The vet told me that they were just calluses and were not a concern. Perhaps Dunga has the same thing? They are only about 1/2 cm below the knee joint...
