Unhealthy weight loss, Crying, Vomiting, Fur pulling

by Tony
(Greenfield, WI, USA)

Our cat is 10+ years old. She is mainly a house cat but occaisonally goes outside. She is losing weight to a point where her ribs are showing. She eats whenever food is presented. As well, as weight loss she is crying excessively. During the week she will vomit several times, usually liquid with very few solid content. Lastly, she has begun pulling her own fur out. Clumps have been pulled out but not to a point were there are bald spots.

She has not been to a vet in some time. So, there are several possible illnesses.

I would like to know conditions, solutions, new diet suggestions, etc.

This does not sound good at all and ther only solution is to take her for tests at the vet. I am not a vet myself so i am not able to give a diagnosis but i do know that excessive eating van be a sign of a thyroid problem especailly if she is losing weight as well. A blood test will be the only way to say for sure. If it is, it can be treated by either medication or an operation.

As for the other symptoms i do not know if they are related or separate conditions. A trip to the vets is really the only answer.
