Q. My cat is 4,has been healthy. Now he has a few bald patches & had a light tan colored stool. We recently moved. Should I be very concerned?

A. The stress of a move and new home may cause some hair loss. A diet change can result in different colored stool. Monitor him for the next few days. Make sure he is eating and drinking normally and is not lethargic. If the issues progress, schedule an exam with your veterinarian.
