Your cat may have a simple allergy to flea bites. It is a common ailment with cats. Things to look for are small red spots, itching, or excessive washing and pulling of their fur. Check with a veterinarian as they can prescribe a steroid to help with the reaction.

There could be many causes for hair loss. Cats shed a lot about twice a year and also shed a little during rest of the year. Daily brushing should be able to help with shedding. If it does not improve then health issues such as ringworm infection can cause hair loss especially on the face and head area.
