It sounds like your cat has ringworm. It appears as a circular scab anywhere on an animals body that hair will grow over and make it hard to find them unless you pet your cat regularly. Ringworm is very common in cats and not always detected because of the thickness of their fur. Fortunately, it's not an actual worm but a fungus. I would take the dog to your vet to get an official diagnosis, and he/she will prescribe some topical medication to start treating the fungus. I'm currently treating my puppy for ringworm. I was told to rub the scabs with soap and water and then peel them off, getting rid of the growth. You can do this with either a wash cloth or a bath. I bathed my puppy every other day, and it's been two weeks. The growth has somewhat stopped, and I'm confident it will go away shortly. Unfortunately, this fungus takes a long time to get rid of. But like I said, talk to the vet to be sure.
