This can be from many things, but first you need to take him to the vet to rule out a health problem. If it is behavioral, has anything changed in the home, like a new baby, spouse or pet? Next, is there anything that is causing your cat undue stress? Remove the stressor and the fur will grow back. If it turns out that your cat is just plain neurotic, then calming sprays and pheromone diffusers, cat trees and toys, cat babysitter dvd's, calming collars and prozac are all options that you can look into. My friend's inside cat went on prozac for the same thing, and after a month his fur started growing back. ^_^
