My kitty Cole is 10 almost 11 yrs old now and he has a balding spot by his tail stretching about mid way up his back . I can not find any fleas(although I gooped him up with his stuff) his appetite is normal his water intake is normal and ditto for his activness. The skin is normal no redness,scabiness,or other indications that it's infected. I don't see him scratching or licking the area either. Doe's anyone have any ideas as what might be going on? His vet reccomended stopping his vaccines last year do to his age over vaccinations in kiities I quess can be very bad past a certain age and since he is an indoor cat I agreed to stop the vaccinations. So I'm kinda nervous about taking him into a vets office unless needed since he's not vaccinated at this point. My arms also bear the marks of his indignation of me wanting to look at his gums which are a pretty pink so with out any obvius signs of discomfort or illness in him I'm wondering if it might just grow back as it's just a thinning patch not bald yet and I know just because I can't find fleas doesn't mean that their not there.
Anyways thanks for reading and any ideas or experiences you may have with older/aging kitty's is appreciated as he's my first.
