My Maine Coon is losing fur in her back legs and tail. Please help
Hello, my Maine Coon is 5 years old, and she’s an indoor cat. I noticed she has started losing fur in her back legs and tail this past month.
She has never lost this much fur before. I don’t know what to do, can you please give me advice.
Hi There, It sound like this has happened before, just not to this extent, right?
I'm not sure where you are, but it's spring where I am, and shedding season. Even indoor kitties will shed their luscious winter coat in the spring! Spring shedding is triggered by the sun's position and even indoor cats will respond.
If it's more than just a good shed, if it's so thin that you are concerned, definitely ask your vet. It may not even require a visit. Many vets will be able to discern whether there is cause for concern with a phone consultation. They will know the proper questions to ask. If this is a symptom of an underlying health condition, you definitely want to know.
All The Best, Carrie
