My cat is losing weight but eats constantly
My cat is 14 years old has very few teeth. He is always straving I feed him and feed him and he is still hungry eats like he has never been fed Even though I just fed him an hour ago.. I give him fancy feast or Iams pate. He has become quite skinny he was a large fat cat but over the last year he seems to keep losing more and more weight and eating more and more food. Could he have cancer,
I don't see any evedence of worms.

Could be a thyroid problem. My own cat was the same, it is very common and does need treatment as soon as possible as. The treatment varies between medication and an operation. My own cat had the thyroid removed and now she is her own happy self again and she is 16. She has regained her normal body weight and looks and behaves very healthy.
Don't delay in seeing the vet as the cat will also start to loss muscle and this will make them weak.
