If your cat is an outdoor cat then maybe it brawled with the "neighborhood bully" or just another cat. If this is the case and the wounds are scabbing, then that means they are healing so you don't have to be concerned. The only two things you can do to help is make sure that the skin isn't red-ish, swollen, or "lumpy", which means it is infected. And make sure you or your cat doesn't scratch it off. Your cat might do it when she's/he's itching near it or your might do while petting him/her, etc.

.Sounds like "flea dirt" aka bloody scabs from flea bites. Infested with fleas? By the time you read this fleas will be on your arms. Legs or ha ha ankles. Oh yeah. Tape worms. That's another segment. Of Your life. Rubbing alcohol applied. To Kitty's. Scabs (removed and placed on sink) reveals blood
