tiger is loosing weight

(Houston, Texas)

I have a 2 year old fixed, & declawed male cat. He seems to be loosing alot of weight. His appetite is good, eats all day, feeding Purina Feline Favorites. He looks so malnutritioned. He also vomits about every other day. He is even loosing fur. Can i feed him a better food or something?

you really do need to get your cat seen by a vet soon. Loosing weight but still eating and perhaps eating lots too is a sign of an underlining illness such as a thyroid problem, diabetes, heart conditions etc. test will need to be done t determine the exact problem.

The sooner you can get him seen the better, as he may also be losing muscle too once all his fat is gone. I know this happened to my cat too.

I hope your vet can help him soon

best wishes Kate
