    She may have worms or just be leaner in general...

    Feed good healthy and quality dry food to your cat. Skinny cat gives 1-2 canned food in a day . you should concern with your vet for her health.

    It could be due to her eating and then going and being sick outside unless she is a house cat.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas

    I have two cats, and while one of them are at a healthy weight, my one cat is very skinny. All of her bones you can easily feel, although not see through her long fur (she is a ragdoll). All of my cats are on the same eating schedual, with IAMS original food left in a bowl in the kitchen all day long.
    Any suggestions on how to get her to eat?

    Did your vet run a thyroid test? This is a very real possibility. Ask your vet about FIP. This is a very hard disease to diagnosis. Only way is through a biopsy. Ask your vet to put him on a high calorie diet.Also chech the internet for info. Type in feline - thin. You could try Cornell, Morris animal foundation, and the Veterinary medical information web pages.

    Oh, no, sorry to hear about your cat. I bet you really miss it. :cry: At least it was old age and not something else, most cats do die of something else besides old age. K. I will wait for the other links...

    There is some info here on feeding meat over dry food; http://catinfo.org/ and also some links here; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raw_feeding there are also RAW topics with some great info and links here on this site given by our members mostly in the dog health section, but some here in the cat sections as well, I'll find them here a bit later and link them, at this very moment, my baby is asleep on my arm, limiting what I can do, lol. So I'll get back to you on more, normally I would have more, but not being a cat owner anymore, my last passed away a few years ago due to old age, I'm not as fully up to date on it al as I use to be.

    What kind of raw? He has always since he was a kitten eaten mice, and once Alex, the huge cat, caught him a squirrel, and Laddie caught himself a Chipmunk, and many more things. I know that mice carry lots of disease, but we worm him and give him GSE regularly. Do you consider that good enough? We always find the healthiest dry cat food available, but that is only half of his diet, because he regularly eats mice and any other meat he can catch.

    Its the healthies you can feed your cat, and it often contains more nutrients and healthy fats then regular cat food, not to mention you get to avoid the ash filler in most cat foods. You might find he puts on a little weight with RAW where he wont with cat food.

    Goat milk is healthy for cats. But not healthy in large amounts. That is only why Laddie and Alex get the strip milk. Yes, Laddie is a growing kitten still, and he does get more milk than Alex, but still not much. (Alex is a fully grown cat.) Yes, both cats have firm stools. He is already on water, and also plain heathy cat food (the healthiest it gets now). Why feed him raw?

    Your giving him milk? How old is he? Once a cat reached a certain age, digesting milk becomes an issue, are his stools firm? If not this could be part of your problem and you might consider switching him to just water, only humans and human demesticated animals drink water passed two years of age, cats just arn't really meant to have it after eight or nine weeks, which is why mom weanes them at that time. I would try a high fat high fiber type diet or since your trying to feed your dog RAW, do the same for you cat.
