10 year old cat – seems the more he eats the more weight he is losing
I have a male cat, Beefy, approximately 10 years old (exact age is unknown, he’s a rescued stray I’ve had over the last 4 years or so). Over the last 8 months he has lost a significant amount of weight, going from a robust 13 lbs to half of that. He has an extraordinarily voracious appetite, eating half a can of wet cat food (Friskies- doesn’t make him vomit) every 1-2 hours. It seems the more he eats the more weight he is losing. Several trips to the vet have yielded nothing, bloodwork is normal, xrays check out fine, all tests point to a healthy cat. He’s not turning orange around the mouth or ears, he urinates and defacates normally, although his urine does have a sour funk (smell) to it. Can anything be done for what is now a walking bag of bones? He’s still active, playing and grooming and assuming a ”daddy” position for the 4 youngsters (also an adopted stray litter)… is he in a perpetual state of discomfort? Is he malnourished? Is it something way out in left field that’s idiopathic to the n’th degree? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
