why has my cat lost so much weight?

he doesn't look very healthy these days.

he's been eating regularly, so far as i can tell, but he's skinny as a rail after being nice and fat.

plus he attacked my brother the other day for no reason, bit him real hard.

let's see what else...his "meows" are really messed up these days as well.

this cat's messed up. all you cat lover's out there, what do i do...short of going to the vet?

his attitude sucks, as well, i should mention. he's all paranoid now and everything.

i like my cat.

Ehmm...do guys have cats? I didn't know that.

I have a shark myself. And a wolverine. I'm teaching it (the latter) how to use a computer, so that it can post on FYM when I am "otherwise engaged".

Erm, he might have worms? That would explain why he's eating, but the weight's falling off him. I'd take him to the vets to get some worming tablets; should be fine after a course of those.

I'd hestiatate to suggest that he might be more poorly than that, but if he's grumpy and doesn't want to be fussed, he might have infection. Keep him indoors, keep him comfortable and get kitty to the vets

Hope he gets better soon!

Seriously though, maybe you should take him to the vet. Sicy will have something to say about this...

worms? :S

any other signs i should look for?

and i should have mentioned the cat lives outdoors. i'm allergic to them, it can't be inside. he's a good mouser.

He's been listening to Coldplay maybe?

Seriously, I hope he gets better. Give him some real food, like fish. Cats love fish. I'd send some cod but we're all out around here.

Tuna is the answer. Tuna.

You've seen it and you found it boring because he couldn't get it up.

you've simply crossed the line, and then gone WAY past it.
Yes, he's played right into our hands, hasn't he?

Goodnight, man! Maybe you should include that drool in your signature.
