It can be an incredibly distressing sight seeing bald patches suddenly start to appear on your cat’s body.
Our beautiful bundles of fur are supposed to be just that – bundles of fur.
So, when you start noticing clumps of hair around the house, and small bald patches forming on their coat, of course you’re instantly going to hit the panic button.
