Re; My cat meows too loud & eats like a pig, but looks anorexic


Posted by Lisa W.

I have no idea what is wrong with her.  Took her in as a stray yr 1  1/2 ago (adult) and she meows to wake the dead!  ???  Can't shut her up!  Why?

 Also, she eats and eats and the boyfriend thinks I'm starving her!  Have three other cats and they are good and healthy.  She even eats more than the others.  What is wrong?  Her metabolism?  Is that it?   Help, please.  And can I watch tv in peace without cranking the volume over her?  Enough already!!

Someone respond, 'Orange' is driving me NUTS.

Lisa,

The meowing and the big appetite may be 2 separate considerations or they could be related.  At this point, I'd be more concerned about the big appetite with no weight gain.

She could very well be affected by diabetes mellitus, hyperthyroidism, or some other endocrine (glandular) disorder.  The only way to figure this out is to have her examined by your veterinarian, including some blood lab work.
