|Hey, I've seen some similar threads, but I'd still like to get your opinion on my cat situation.
My roomate got a cat a few months ago. I'm not sure about his situation before, but it must have been pretty terrible... We couldn't approach him without him running away for at least 2 months. Now it's getting better and we can pet him.
He's getting really skinny and barely eats.
But he's clearly very hungry as he meows like crazy every time I go in the kitchen, following me around etc. His plate is full though! (dry and canned).
He will barely ever eat from his plate on his own.
When I feed him with a spoon though, he eats a little bit. But it's very strange: he grabs a bite, and then runs away, eat it on the floor, and comes back for another.
After a few bites, he sometimes makes a really weird, loud, hoarse noise, like if he was really in pain, and runs away.
Do you think he has a disease or does he associates eating with pain, or...?
Thanks a lot!
