Hi all,
My two year old bengal has recently been losing small chunks of fur around her legs. It's never extremely noticeable, but quite sporadically (maybe once or twice per week) I'll notice a new chunk of fur missing. The skin underneath looks a bit dry/flaky.
Initially we thought it may have just been accidental injuries resulting from playing with our other cat (they do like to playfight quite roughly sometimes), but recently it's been happening with increasing frequency, and I'm getting a little worried.
Could she be pulling her own fur out? She's a normal weight, healthy cat with no previous health conditions other than one eye that tears up occasionally. We haven't changed her diet or introduced any new pets either, so I don't know what's going on. :(

I'd check with the vet, it could be ring worm and humans can catch it as well.
