|Is your cat going bald inexplicably? Try bathing her with diluted tea tree shampoo. It is a natural flea deterrent, and often works miracles on skin and scalp problems. For your cat’s safety, the product should not contain more than 1% tea tree oil. You should never use it on kittens or on cats who suffer from diabetes, epilepsy, or metabolic or neurological disorders.
Keep in mind that if your cat is losing hair in conjunction with obsessive grooming behavior that’s not a result of fleas or ringworm, it could be indicative of an underlying internal condition. In those situations, your cat should be examined by a vet.
