Question
I'm not sure what going on but 2 of my 3 kittens are slowly loosing some of their hair. They are getting very fine around their ear tips.
I have no idea what's causing this and would appreciate help.
Thank you,

Answer
Hi
normally losing fur is caused by either a parasite problem or a skin condition see my web page about this here

/cat-hair-loss.html

unfortunately it is difficult to say what the actual cause could be in this case without an examination of the area. this should be done by a vet. At least that way you will be able to get on top of any illness before it gets any worse.
