I have just recently noticed that 1 of my 2 cats has 1 line of missing fur about 1/2inch thick and more than 2 inches long down
the back of both of her hind legs.
My cats are 1/2 old and have not been spayed yet, could that have anything to do with it? I am thinking that it might be dermatitis but I am not quite sure. I checked out my other cat she looks fine. I have also thought maybe my 2 girls got into a little scap,as they are quite rough at times. It also seems like the bald area has a few bumps almost like scabs? Can someone help me please, give me an idea of what to do? She doesn't seem to be in pain, or scratching at all?????

Have your cats been treated for fleas? One of mine licked much of his hair off when he had fleas..even though I couldnt find a flea on him, they were there and were the cause of the problem. The little bumps could either be flea bites or an allergic reaction to something (which might also lead to hairloss). If you are sure there are no fleas, your best bet would be taking her to a vet to find out if she is having an allergic reaction to something or has some other skin issue that might need treatment.
