Default Marlo licking off her hair

I noticed Marlo was grooming a lot. She's pretty fat and has a lot of
places to groom, but I noticed that her belly was looking pretty pink,
as in not much hair. And the inside of her back legs are looking bare.
Obviously we need a trip to the vet.

I hope it turns out to be not too serious.

Purrs for it to be something simple. Sounds like it might be an allergy
but hey, I'm not a vet.

Purrs for it to be something simple to sort.

From what I read it's allergy or stress. She's attacking Baby
sometimes and I do make her stop that. But I'm leaning toward allergy.
We haven't made it to the vet yet but I'm hoping for early next week.

I'd lean toward an allergy too, but only because I noticed the same
behavior in Persia (RB) when she was allergic to a specific medication.
I've got a picture of her somewhere after the vet sent her home in an
e-collar so she wouldn't keep licking. That was one of the funniest
things I've ever seen. Trust me when I say cats do not like having a
cone around their head! LOL
