Cats/loss of hair


hi my 8 week old kitten has lost some fur around her neck and it looks quite sore and scabby could you tell me what it is please if you know? thanks

it is very difficult for me to diagnose this and it really is something that a vet would need to see.

She may have a skin disorder like eczema or it may be due to a flea allergy or other allergy. If it is sore then it would probably be best to get it checked out soon.

Hope it gets better soon
