I have 2 male cats that are brothers. They are 7 yrs old, fixed and strickly indoor cats. When I first got them, one of them was really skinny and had patches of dry skin, minus fur on different parts of his body. It cleared up on its own and no problems with him since. Now, his brother has been licking himself ALL the time and biting himself also. I find clumps of his hair constantly around the house! My husband checked to see if there were fleas on them, and found nothing.
This morning, I noticed that Gizmo; the cat with the biting issues, had chewed off a 6 inch section of fur from the back of his tail!!
I feel terrible for him not knowing what could be wrong! My next step is taking them to a vet, but I want to see if anyone might know what could be causing him to do this?
