Your cats have most likely ringworm. This is an fungal infection in the skin of your cat. To be sure take a look at each of the bald spots and see if they have a thin dark line around them. This can be hard to see if the skin of your cat is dark.

It can be several other skin problems too. You can take a look here https://pets.webmd.com/cats/ss/slideshow-skin-problems-in-cats and take a look at the pictures.

You will need to take your cats to the vet to get it diagnosed and treated.

It might take months before you see any improvement after the treatment have started so be patient.

  • A UV "blacklight" can also be useful when diagnosing ringworm. The live fungus tends to glow green under UV.
