EDIT: I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for your input/advice! I truly appreciate it!

Over Christmas leave I noticed a bald spot on my cats ear while we were visiting family. A friends of mine said it may have been an allergic reaction to something in my parents house. She works at a vet so I believed her. The hair has grown back a good bit since then..Today I noticed a new spot below her eye. I'm calling the vet in the morning, but I'm worried. It's gotten worse over the last couple of hours. Next pic in replies.

She's UTD on vaccines, minus feline leukemia. The vet told me it wasn't necessary because she's indoors and has no interaction with other cats. She's getting that vaccine anyway when she goes to the vet just to be safe. No new food or litter or anything. Same flea preventative and all.

Anyway, have you dealt with this before?

I know they rub their sent with their face and can get bald spots by their eyebrow area, but that looks really bald.

Is the cat scratching the area and maybe losing hair that way?? Other than that I'm not sure......I'd ask the vet in the morning.....

 I have a cat that has spots like that by his ears...they don't seem to bother him.

Its a fungus.  Sorry, I'm not really familiar with feline medicine so I can't recommend what you should use on it.
