Harley, My 7 year old shorthair keeps pulling hair out.It just started a few days ago. I thought maybe the cats have been playing but then I noticed her just her teeth to removed the hair in patches. I am starting to get very worried. Please Help!!

Stress, fleas, or allergies could all be possible causes for this behavior. Have there been any changes in your household recently that might have caused her stress?

Does she have bald spots?

I think if your cat is pulling her hair out to the point she has bald spots, that is a problem.

I have 2 cats that pull their hair out in clumps. Both of them are white so we vacuum ALOT. It has never really concerned me, I always figured it was normal. But they never got to the point where there were any bald psots.

Check out this site about cat skin disorders:

Your cats excessive grooming could be caused by one of these problems.
