...what's wrong with her? My cat used to weigh over a stone and was very overweight.
She was a rescue cat from a Cats Protection Agency and I have rehomed problem cats in the past. She's very skittish and nervous around people.
She's also an indoor cat.
She gradually started to lose weight a year and a half ago.
Additionally, as she is so nervous (she was previously abused) she will not let me groom her and her coat gets very matted. I have taken her to a groomer when it has gotten very bad and it has once more - I'm booking her in tomorrow.
I hadn't noticed how thin she'd got until some friends came to visit who haven't seen her in a while and noticed. She's now very bony but eats and eats.
Tinned cat food an certain biscuits make her vomit and have diarrhoea.On the vets recommendation I give her a Science Plan brand for fussy cats and her stools are now healthy and there's minimum vomiting.
She is regularly wormed / flead and has a yearly check up and injection but I'm very worried about how thin she has got.
She's always going to be skittish and hard to handle due to being abused and although likes affections, runs away if I gently approach her.
I'm booking her into the vets again tomorrow as I'm concerned and would love any thoughts.
Thanks for all your comments.
She's 5 / 6 years old - it wasn't very clear when I rehomed her.
Some of the vomit does have hair in it yes. I think that is part of the reason. Since changing her to the "fussy cat" food, her diarrhoea has improved. She seems lively and usual other than that.
She does always have lots of water and drinks a lot - but more than most cats as she only eats the recommended dry food anyway.
I hope it's nothing too serious and will update you when I've been to my vet tomorrow.
