Cat Losing Fur?

My cat is five years old and has lost fur on both of his back legs and hip area on both sides. There are no sores or irritated skin, just no fur. He had been eating Purina Naturals for three years and then we switched to Blue Brand. He gets monthly flea treatments and otherwise seems normal and active. I am assuming this is a skin problem or allergy? The vet said it was anxiety, which he has occasionally when my husband leaves, they are very attached. But the weird thing is we have never seen him bite that area.

Anytime a cat loses hair or you notice a bald spot you should take the cat to the vet.

If what you say is true about the cat being under stress the hair loss could be caused by psychogenic alopecia this is a form of ringworm in cats due to stress.
