Cats/hair loss in kitten


Is it normal for a kitten to loose their hair and get a new coat?

Yes cats and kittens loss their fur all the time so it is not unusual for this to happen. Obviously it is gradually and there should be no bald spots on the coat. If this is happening then it is likely that the kitten may have a flea or parasite problem which will need urgent attention.

please see my page about cat fur loss.


best wishes Kate
