Hi
When ever a cat losses weight but is still eating normally it does suggest that there a underlining illness. there are many conditions which can produce this affect and the only way to diagnose the actual cause is with some blood work.

one of the main causes of weight loss is thyroid problems, please see my web page here for more details

But the main thing you have to do now is to get them seen my a vet sooner rather than later before.

best wishes kate
