My cat grooms until her hair comes off. Her back legs and belly look
like they have been shaved. I've checked her carefully- no fleas, no
sign of ringworm, no redness or irritation at all. She's as active and
playful as ever, good appetite and drinking a normal amount.
The behavior began after my roomate died; she spent many hours each day
sitting on his lap or being petted. I spend as much time with her as I
can but its not nearly the amount she's used to. I spoke to a vet on the
phone and he said it sounded like a psychogenic rather than a physical
problem. Has anyone experienced anything similar?
