    1. It sounds like your cat may be experiencing some skin irritation. The rough, red skin and excessive grooming are common symptoms of skin irritation in cats. It’s difficult to say exactly what might be causing the irritation without more information, but it could be due to a number of things, such as an allergy, infection, or even stress.

      If your cat is still eating and behaving normally, it’s likely not a serious issue. However, it’s always a good idea to have your cat checked out by a veterinarian to determine the underlying cause of the skin irritation and determine the best course of treatment. Your vet may recommend a medicated shampoo or other medication to help relieve the irritation and prevent further hair loss.

      In the meantime, you can try to keep your cat comfortable by providing a quiet, stress-free environment and avoiding any potential irritants that might be causing the problem. It’s also a good idea to keep an eye on your cat’s skin and grooming habits, and contact your vet if you notice any changes or if the problem persists.
