My concern is my 2 year old long hair seal point female cat is light as a bird and in my opinion overly thin. She hides it well under a luxurious coat that in recent weeks seem lackluster at best. It seems to be by choice as I have exhausted any means to get her to eat more. She loses interest in a couple weeks in any brand, low cost or high (soft); she has a steady A grade hard always available, as well as water and treats. There’s been a marked change in her appetite but more so lately.
There has been a change in the household which I recognize as a contributor. A new member to the household. I found a roughly 5 month old female grey and white kitten on my steps apparently attacked or abused and in rough shape. Am I taking on too much for this group?
Are there any suggestions to help her reach a healthier weight and increasing activity? Is this just a phase (it’s been a issue to get her to sit down to a full portion for a long period). Her stools are regular and she's not vomiting, just little energy and engagement. Could it be jealousy?
