Hello! My cat Molly is seven years old, no clue what breed she is, I got her at a pet shop (I know, a bad idea). I was only eight years old so I just got her because she was pretty! She's a mostly outdoor cat during the day, but she sleeps in my room at night. She has recently developed three bald patches on her back/tail area. At first there was only one, but upon examination I noticed three, and possibly more coming. They're about the same size as the hole when you touch your thumb and forefinger. The colour of the patches is not worrying, but there are dozens of small brown dots on her skin, some are bigger than others. The patch that is on her tail and lower back has a pea sized scab on it. I have never seen her itch the spots and she has never over groomed. Anyone know the problem so I can treat it myself before having to take her to the vet?
