Q. Why would my cat be shedding now, in the cold weather? She is a cat I rescued - I found her roaming the streets, but I had her checked by a vet.
Now her hair is falling out in clumps!
If the hair is falling out but leaves no bald area then the cat just needs a really good grooming.
She's pretty old and quite crabby (the cat not the friend) and I would like to calm her down some.
If the cat can't be medicated orally some medications cane be given transdermally (through the skin).
