Hi Jack! Hair loss can be due to lots of reasons, most common allergies, infection and excessive grooming. Depends on the duration and rather it is itchy or not, it could be very different despite two cats have similar skin and coat condition.

To investigate, your vet will take a full history including diet and preventatives, so make sure you have all the information when you plan to visit the vet. Your vet may need to run different diagnostic tests and possibly food trial to find out the cause. If it is a behavioural issue, other conditions will need to be ruled out. Then, the condition can be treated accordingly.

I hope this help!
