I am going away on vacation tomorrow and I am just now noticing my little man's odd spots that have appeared. Does anyone know what these are? My first thought was Ringworm, but I am not sure! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help if you have any idea what this could be.

Well I am no vet and some of those pics are kind of blurry but that doesn't look anything like ringworm to me. Ringworm is usually red...I google a pic to show you...this is NOT my cat!


I don't think your cats markings are anything particularly alarming. But if you are truly concerned (again the pics may not do justice to the situation) I would have your vet look at it!
I hope this helps put your mind at ease. Have a great vacation!

Welcome by the way! As @sphynxmoms said, it doesn't appear to be ringworm, could you get any clearer pics? If eating, drinking, bathroom and energy levels haven't changed, I would say your fine. Always leave your vets info and number for the cat sitter just in case. :)

Has your cat been wearing that sweater for long? Could be allergic to the sweater perhaps, or if the sweater was not rinsed well, the detergent might be affecting. I would remove the sweater and see what happens.

I don't think it's ringworm. My cleo gets little patches like that from rubbing on her Cat tree . They go away in a day or 2. I would just maybe use some baby benadryl creme on them

Hello everyone and thank you for your replies! I have been reading them through my email but I have just now downloaded the app on my phone (as apposed to computer ) to reply !! I appreciate this community so much and all of the feed back. The spots are slowly starting to fade , so I am hoping they will be healed by the time I return. The only reason I even continued to leave for vacation is because he is eating /drinking/ playing normally , so I assumed what ever it is is not life threatening.
