Is there perhaps a vet amongst our H24 experts ?
You're probably right in guessing that removing that patch of hair is her way of saying she feels upset, but it's not necessarily a sign of her being seriouly disturbed to the point that you should change your financial plans. They're generally adaptable creatures, and she should settle down in time. I admire your concern about lookin after the cat ( and I'm sure the cat helps usefully to look after you ) but if moving back to your place sooner than planned puts you under greater financial strain, that in itself isn't necessarily beneficial for the cat. Maybe discuss with the foster family how she is adjusting and explain the significance of this sign - maybe they could make some adjustments towards settling her more. And tummy hair fortunately does seem to grow back fine
