what can my cat be craving to make him meow & always want to eat? He acts desparate. He is a fixed male over 10 yrs old.
I feed him, but he only eats a little bit. It's like he's lacking something.

My cat was doing something of the same he was always wanting to eat and he was vary active i took him to the vet almost to late and found that older cats can have hyper thyroid and it can be vary bad. my cat is back to eating normally and on a good medication to keep it in check i would suggest taking him in and getting that checked may take some time to get the medication to the right dosage.
If he's 10, then it's possible he's recently developed a health problem. Does he vomit often? Look for other signs of illness. Take him to your vet to check for thyroid, kidney, and intestinal problems. This sounds like a health issue, not a behavioral one.
