Outside cat ill
(LA CA USA)
My cat has always been very healthy - a very beautiful long haired cat. Lately he is extremely hungry - his coat is scruffy - and his belly is swollen. He was always very interested in "talking" to the neighbor's cat through the fence and always greeted us when we returned home. His only interest now is food. He doesn't seem to be in any kind of pain. This came on suddenly. He was always a large cat but now has lost considerable girth and much lighter in weight. He is approximately 10 years old and was left on a friend's porch when he was a kitten.

Hi, I am not a vet and so cannot say for sure what could be wrong but has he been wormed?
If possible I would take this cat to the vets as soon as possible, it does sound like a rather extreme case of worms or of course it may be some other illness which needs investigation.
best wishes Kate
