Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
If Simon has been neutered, this could be a Hormone Responsive Alopecia secondary to the loss of testosterone. This is a common problem in male cats and us treated with hormones that your vet can prescribe. The steroids should have helped this skin problem so since it did not, it may be good to biopsy Simon's skin to know for sure what is causing this and the best treatment. Often, the hormones, if Simon is neutered, will resolve this for him.
Does that make sense to you?
