My cat has hair loss on one side going under her stomach and in between her back legs. The only thing that happened a few weeks ago she jumped into the bath tub with water she got scared and jumped out, she didn't realize that there was water in the tub.

No idea. My cat now has the same thing. The hair is gone from her lower stomach and inside the rear legs. It's very evenly gone, almost like it was shaved - the remaining hair is like very short peach fuzz (she feels like a hot water bottle there). No injuries, no skin condition and the cat's in great shape. Maybe she's just balding as she gets older ... ?

Just as with humans, there are a number of causes of hair loss. Your cat could have had an injury that caused the hair to fall out. See if you notice any wounds near the area where there is no hair. Sometimes cats shed in irregular patterns, causing the hair to look a bit patchy in areas. A skin condition could be causing her fur to fall out. Another possible cause is illness.

The only way to know for sure is to take her to see a vet, or at least call a vet to describe all her symptoms. A veterinarian will be able to examine your cat's health in a holistic way. By looking into her eyes and mouth, for instance he may get clues to what is causing the problem. It could be a condition that will quickly go away, or it might be something more serious.
