Barn cat lost a lot of weight.

by Nana

My cat Nana is around 8 or 9 years old and she was recently a barn cat but one day i noticed that she had lost a lot of weight, shes insanely skinny and barely eats now. She also lost a lot of balance and can barely walk without stumbling over. She also has a runny nose that just begun a couple days ago. i brought her inside maybe 2 weeks ago and I've seen a bit of progress but it comes and goes. She also urinates a lot more than my other cats do. what is wrong with her?

well it could be lots of different things causing her problems. Weight loss can be a sign of several different things from cancer to feline heart disease and even cat thyroid issues.

To be honest with you her condition and symptoms you mention are quite severe and your only real option is to take her to see a vet. He will be able to test and find out what is wrong and then take it from there as to what her options are etc. There may be treatments and some may be more expensive than others, but a good vet should be able to give you all the information before you have to make any decisions for your cat.
