Q. Hi I have a male cat Ragdoll 10 years old and he is eating constantly and has been losing weight lately Also his fur is not growing anymore

A. Based on these symptoms and your cats age I would be concerned about Diabetes Mellitus and Hyperthyroidism here. I would recommend having bloodwork done on your kitty to help confirm a diagnosis.
Every cat above 7 years old is recommended to have routine annual bloodwork to help detect diseases for prompt diagnosis, treatment and their quality of life. And most diseases you catch Early can be successfully managed. Good luck at the vet!
