Hi! I’ve recently found a bald spot on one of my cat’s back legs. His sister doesn’t seem to have this, and he only has one on one leg. After many searches, I’ve found it could be pressure points, but i’m SO nervous it could be ringworm so I wanted your opinion! He doesn’t seem to itch, and his skin seems pink-ish.

Thanks for your help!

This is normal. Yes, you are right, those place are pressure points and it's where that spot comes in contact on the places where your cat lays. It's like a callous.

My boy has them too. I think don't worry so much. Ringworm does not look like this.

Thank you so much!! It’s normal he has one only on the right paw?

Guess that particular paw has more pressure to it and all it depends on the way your kitty favors to sit or sleep with more pressure on one side.

But later on, the other leg/legs will get it too.
