Maybe your cat is stressed?

Hair loss is usually either from stress or other mental problems or allergies. The pattern of hairloss you described sounds like an allergy. If it is a flea allergy use something like Frontline or Advantage to clear up the fleas. Your vet can give you a shortcourse of steroids to try. Mine gave me a weeks worth for my cat. If the hairloss stops then you know it is an allergy, if not it might be stress or something else.

If it is a flea allergy.....the hair should start growing back as long as you keep the fleas away. My cat did this also because of fleas and he ripped so much hair out that it took some time to grow back.
