Question
I have a pair of cats..and my cat has come in heat for first time..however my otherwise gentle Tom Cat nipped quite a mouthful of hair off my cat's chest in an attempt to mating...is that serious..

Answer
Hi
unfortnately cat mating act be quite aggressive and can result in bites etc.

Unless the skin was broken there is probably nothing to worry about but if the skin was brocken it might be a good idea to take them to the vets to prevent any infection setting in.

best wishes
