|My 10-year old cat usually eats twice a day (1/3 cup x 2), but lately he leaves a lot of little crumbs in the bottom of his bowl, and leaves them there forever. I thought he was just getting older and needed less food, so I cut his food down to 1/3c once a day, but now he is acting like he is starving, scavenging around for food and acting desperate. Meanwhile there's still crumbs in his bowl.
I've only done this for about a week now, but I noticed today he seems to have lost a LOT of weight. My cat has always been in the healthy range weight-wise, but at the top of that range. Now he's practically underweight, I would guess.
So, he is eating and chewing enthusiastically, which leads me to think it's NOT a dental issue. He just leaves a lot of little crumbs behind and doesn't want those. It's almost like they get soggy or stale and then he doesn't want them. So strange to be begging for food though, and refuse to eat the leftover crumbs. Vexing.
What's wrong with my cat?
