Answer by Kate
yes it is something that needs to be checked out by a vet as soon as possible. rapid weight loose always needs to be investigated by a vet. it may be a thyroid or heart issue which can be treated if caught early enough.

the sooner you can get her to the vets the better. My own cat lost a lot of weight a year or so ago and it turned out to be her thyroid. She is fine now.

i hope all is well

best wishes Kate
