Q. Are cat has lost a lot of weight and her eye looks infected I think she might have been poisoned what can we do she won't eat are anything

Answered By

A. This sounds very serious. It could be many things depending on her age, etc. I would take her in to you vet ASAP. They will want to at least physically examine her, and will probably want to run bloodwork and possibly other diagnostics. It will help to narrow down the possible causes and get her feeling better. She needs to eat soon because cats can go into liver failure when they are not eating.
