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)?

It sounds like the same problem as my 16 year old male has.
He has a problem with his metabolism. It's not uncommon in older cats, but it's quite easy to treat. They need to be on pills for the rest of their life, but they do quite fine on them and thrive :)

When they have metabolism problems, they will eat all the time, and still loose weight. So that would be my bet.
But go check with a vet :)
Not to be a b*tch, but you did say this:
You need to buy a better food, that's the ONLY thing will solve it
That's medical advice...
Just because it want's human food, it doesn't have to do with the cat food it gets.
As I said, our cat wants food all the time, even though he's better now, and isn't loosing weight.
That's your opinion.
Our cat has always stolen our food, and nothing is wrong with him in that way. Like potatoes. He does not like them, but if he gets to steal a potato, he loves it.

And more or less all the cats I know, love human food...
Might just be because we do not feed plain cat food, but sometimes cook them some food like liver and stuff like that. I do not know if this is something you do in the US...
While we're on the subject, I wanted to add that my friend feeds high-quality cat food but one of their cats (they have two) steals human food. Once he stole a whole turkey :lol:.
