PLEASE HELP!!! My Cat is Always Hungry and Always Pukes!!

Hello Everyone,

I am new to this forum, but I can see that it is really a great place to talk about cats. My cat has been getting skinnier/unhealthier over the past few months. She eats a lot and yet is ALWAYS begging for food, it seems as if she is always starving and is fighting for her life.

She practically dedicates her life to scavenging for food, always roaming the kitchen after meals and even clawing through plastic-wrap to get to things such as bread, pastries, etc. We have been trying to feed her in little dosages because she pukes very often, especially after she eats a lot. She averages a solid 1.5 pukes per day.

It seems as if she is eating a lot more than she has over the years, and yet she is still very skinny and is losing weight, along with her constant puking. Has anyone experienced anything similar with their cat and does anyone have any suggestions? What do you think the problem is and what can I do to get her better (I am on a tight budget)?

Thanks for the response!

I consulted with my brother and he does not think that the food we are feeding her is the problem. We feed her Science Diet catfood and it is of great quality!

She is also experiencing some hair loss, has increase thirst, increased urination, and is 'ravenous', but she does have a high energy level.

Any other opinions/suggestions are appreciated!
Hi Again,

Thanks to everyone who responded and provided recommendations, especially Flickering! Without her advice, I would not have known that Science Diet is not a good quality cat food. Now that I know, I am going to feed her a different food. Please do not leave the forum flickering, you have been very helpful.

And to everyone else, how much would you guess the vet bill is going to be? My brother seems to think it is either a kidney problem or hyperthyroidism. Do you all know how appx. how much it costs to treat a cat with these complications? About how much will it cost for an initial check-up? What about putting her to sleep, would this be considered serious enough to justify that?

Thanks again!
