and i should have mentioned the cat lives outdoors. i'm allergic to them, it can't be inside. he's a good mouser.
If he does have worms [and yeah, it does sound pretty gross], then he'll be hungry all the time, basically because he won't be getting full. So if he's looking for food more than he usually does, that's a good sign.

Is he usually grumpy, or is this a new thing? Oh, and btw, if he just generally has a poorly tummy, something rich like fish might make him poo. A lot. Beware

He needs to go to the vet. Losing weight is never a good sign.

what about winter weight or whatever.

the guy (well, he's an "it" really) bulked up ver winter, but now that's summer, perhaps it took him till now to get rid of some of it?

i dunno, that doesn't seem to likely either considering none of my other cats have gone through something quite as noticably.

Did I say that? No I didn't.

I tried to calm things down when the Mods were seemingly ignoring it.

Thanks a bunch anyway.

It really sounds like he's sick from your initial description. If you care about 'it' you'll take him in for a vet visit.

And Tuna isnt really good for cats to eat on a regular basis. Once in a while as a snack or to get them to eat is fine but it lacks a lot of the nutritions that cats need to survive.

Does he go outside a lot during summer? I try to keep my cats inside, but there's one who always manages to sneak out in the summer time. She tends to lose a lot of weight as well during this time of the year because she's engaging herself in a lot more activity than she does in winter. (Always bringing shrews to the porch . She's already at it, actually.)

In any case, you should definitely take your cat to the vet. It could be worms, or it could be something worse.

Bear, do you really have a cat? I'll only give you free doctor advice if you are telling the truth. How old is your cat?

Excuse me?

Seemingly ignoring it? I was right here in this forum the entire time there were problems earlier, In fact I missed dinner with my family to stay here. answering the reports, posting, PMing people, and doing the very best I could. Hell I was on the phone with one of the admins. I'm sorry but you could not be wrong and after the day I have had here, I will not have someone sitting here saying the mods were "seemingly ignoring" anything .

Really? Well I will not have a mod calling me out like the way Sicy did above when I was trying to calm things down.

As a premium member I contribute financially to the place and therefore I would like to be treated with some modicum of consideration, frankly.

Zootlesque I would dearly love to chill and have a good time but why should I be expected to be just publicly called out by 2 mods like that? Total double standard if you ask me.

financeguy - not trying to gang up on you - but I think this might have actually been a serious thread with a serious question. If you have beefs with the mods, it would be better to talk to them by email or PM instead of dragging it out here-
