|This is Delyte. I have been doing this since last summer, and the vet has not been able to figure out why. No fleas, no skin issues, and the skin biopsy came back okay. New better fur has grown back, too. For a while I had baldish patches, which was not an attractive look, but now the hair grows back so fast that you can't really see anything. I am going to be 17 soon and have bad arthritis in my hips, so they thought it might be something to do with that, but they really don't know. Or something to do with getting senile? The house looks like someone exploded a cat in it! Jet black fur is hard to ignore.
If you can, you might try putting a small dog sweater or baby's t-shirt on the kitty, to keep him from getting to most of the spots. I had a dog sweater in the winter that I tolerated and I looked quite cute in it. But it is too hot for that now. Plus if the kitty is pulling off on his rump and around his far nether end,you can't keep that covered up without having a very frustrated cat and extra laundry to do.
Let us know if they ever figure out what it is! Giant but balding purrs to you all!
