INCREDIBLY HUNGRY CAT w/STINKY POO
I have an 8 year old American Shorthair. All of a sudden he is ravenously hungrey and has the worst smelling poo. Neither of which he used to have. He can not be satisfied, he always wants more! We did take him to the vet and they found nothing. The gave him a blood test (fine) and checked his poo for parasites (none). What is wrong with this animal? He is skinny but not too skinny ans has always been skinny. He always has been a very proud cat with a lot of attitude. HE is now annoying!

My advice is to take him back to the vets and discuss with them what tests they did on the blood. That way you can rule out things like thyroid, heart, cancer or diabetis issues. (not all blood tests test for all of these)
It sounds to me like he has an issue with absorbing nutrients from food etc. that would explain why he is always hungrey and and why he is loosing weight. It may also affect his feaces. There definately sounds like something is wrong and only extensive tests from the vet will be able to find out what is wroung.
My own cat had to go throgh some very extensive blood work to find out what was wrong with her a while ago. Unfortunately these extensive tests do cost more than normal blood work.
Unfortunately only a vet can help you diagnose this issue. I really hope your cats problem can be sorted out soon. I know how annoying this constant food crying is.
