Drastic weight loss in cat
my cat is seven years old. she use to be a big cat around 5 kilograms. i've change their food a while ago to hills indoor and hairball for 7+. she is longhaired and she had a lot of hair balls. i am not sure if its the food as she definitely eats it but she has had drastic weight loss in the last 2 months as i can feel her bones. she is pretty much just skin and bones. she eats normally, plays normally and shows no signs of illness. can it be just the food that has metabolised all the hairballs that this is her actual size or is something wrong with her
