|hiw is his stool? How old is he?
Our little black house panther Midnight-a failed foster-is very thin. We were told to get his stool retested for possible giardia, as this can cause thinness. Older cats, also, sometimes have trouble gaining weight-Smokieboo has losst weight as he's gotten older and will need a 'senior panel' soon. There are so many reasons taht can cause cats not to gain weight...our cats get canned and dry-the dry is Nataural Balance Salmon and Rabbit as our vet suggested 'novel' proteins for him-and thus, for all my cats who eat dry. Middy eats anything, and we are also having a problem with him putting on weight. However, he is just a year old, plays, and appears otherwise healthy.
We are probably going to have to have him checked again soon.
all the best to you!
