What causes fur loss in cats?

This is not normal shedding. My cat has been losing fur in chunks, like patches all over his body. What could this be?

this could be something minor like flea bite dermatitis or it could be something really major like feline leukemia. If this is the ONLY symptom your cat has i would get some flea medicine like revolution and some hydrocortisone spray and see if that helps. otherwise see a vet.

There are a couple of cat illness that can cause chunks of fur to come off. If they are bald patches from licking or scratching is may just be fleas.
