Q. My cat is obsessed with eating! She is an indoor cat. She will not interplay in any way at all. All she does is meow for food. I'm now desperate! Ta!

Answered By

A. Have her examined by your vet. Blood work can be done to assess major organ function and endocrine function. If she is an older cat, rule out thyroid conditions or diabetes. Feed a good quality canned food (high protein, low carb) instead of dry food to provide your cat with a feeling of satiety (feeling full/sated).
