Without more detail, it's very difficult to answer your question. If you are concerned that she is either under or overweight, look down on her when she's standing. She should have a nice, hourglass shape. You shouldn't be able to feel her bones protruding, but you should be able to feel them. As animals age, their appetites change and they are susceptible to more illnesses and health issues. If you think your cat is either too fat or too skinny, the best one to advise you is a vet. If she has stopped eating, suddenly developed a voracious appetite or changed her daily behavior in any other ways, it's time to call her doc.
