I mopped my floors in a very strong clorox water, then the next day I noticed my beautiful medium hair female had fur missing from the inside of her back legs & her butt, she is perfectly fine otherwise...I'll never mop with clorox again & really should have known better...Will her fur grow back? :cry: Did the strong clorox water do this? She was fine before...

Well, while bleach is GREAT for disenfecting. I myself use it a lot, as well as several vet offices and animal shelters.
You have to use it appropriately.
I typically mix 1/4 Bleach to the rest water.
After you clean you MUST rinse well. If you do not rinse well, this will leave a filmy white residue all over. If licked by your cat or you, it can be hazardous depending on how much is injested. It can also be harmfull if left on the surface of something, aka your cats bottom and legs.

I would say call your vet and speak with them about this. There is also the off chance the hair loss is caused by some other underlying problem.
