My cat is 12 years old. Lately she has gotten huge knots in her fur and seems to be unable to get rid of them. I have tried to cut them away, but recently I have noticed that she is losing her fur in those areas. I am going to have her groomed, but I worry that the hair loss is a symptom of something else that may be wrong with her. Thank you for your help.
Sometimes the matts fall off. This is probably what you are seeing but a visit to the vet will not hurt. vetcare
