We just left on a 5 day vacation in all the days she only had eaten one cup of food. Is that the typical amount? Also she has been losing a very small bit of hair on her left ear and i was wondering if that meant anything? its been like that for about 3 months and she hasent lost anymore. thank you for reading!!! :D

Lemme make sure I have this straight... You went on vacation and took your cat with you or your cat stayed behind and only ate that amount?

Either way one cup of food during a five day period is a small amount but she might have been stressed out from the vacation(or you leaving her which ever one) and that's normal.

As for the small patch of missing hair, it could be a lot of things but it's hard to pin point what it could be without looking at it. If she hasn't lost anymore hair and the spot doesn't seem to bother her than it's probably nothing serious.

:wink:

I would say if after you returned she went back to normal she is fine. She probably was depressed you were gone. The hair loss could have been from scratching either from just an itch or earmites. If she seems to be growing the hair back and eating normal I wouldn't worry if the weird stuff persists take her in. OH to be sure... is the patch of hair missing happen to be a ring or round shape? ...that could mean ring worms or mange.

Our cat never eats as much when we are on vacation as she does normally. I think they are just a little stressed when their owners are gone. She goes back to normal afterwards and it has never been a problem.
