    I'm not sure how long since this started but I was sitting outside taking pictures of my kitty clan and noticed my sugar baby's nose is missing a good chunk of fur. Is this something I should be worried about? She hasn't been acting like she's itchy or anything, no other hair loss anywhere else.

    She's been cleared of any parasites and thyroid issues and all that good stuff when she was diagnosed in late March.

    First off Panic is absolutely gorgeous! Love those white whiskers on a black kitty.

    I've seen my girl get a similar patch occasionally and have assumed it was the play fist fights she gets into with her younger brother who was a feral and takes his play fights a little too seriously on occasion and doesn't know enough to keep his claws out of it. They usually disappear in a short time as the hair grows back. Funny thing is I've never seen a scratch or anything, and like you no itching just hair missing in a small patch.

    Ahh thank you! I've always loved how her whiskers looked against her black fur <3

    That's reassuring! Any other of my bunch and I probably wouldn't think anything of it, but with Panic I'm extra paranoid. Our newest member (a little white kitten) is a bit of a bully to her so maybe they got into it.

    Bonus pictures of my other two mollies that were hanging with us on the porch. :)

    Beautiful clowder you have there. Is the white kitty the new kitten aka potential culprit? There is something mischievous in that face!

    She is. Naughty little thing too! She likes to wrestle with the tomcats but the girls she prefers to pick fights with. Need to get some sunscreen for those ears (oh how I envy how easy it is to see the veins on them!) but can't find cat-friendly sunscreen.

    I noticed one of my cats has lost some fur on her nose when we switched her to 100% wet food. I think its from her rubbing her nose on the dish looking for food while eating. Doesn't seem to bother her at all though.

    Oh really? That could be it too, since I had to switch her over as well. O:

    Yea, the cat that does have the bald spot is old and blind so I think she spends some extra time nosing around in the bowl instead of just gobbling it all down. Who knows though haha!
