Cats/Kittens (2) loosing their hair around ear tips


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,

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


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.

best wishes Kate
