If your cat is always hungry, then you aren’t alone. If you are a cat owner, you know that going to the vet is likely in order if your cat goes its food off for 1 day or more. However, if your cat eats constantly, it could be a sign of health issues, both psychological and physical.
Here are several reasons why your cat always eats:
If your cat has roundworms, then it would become always hungry. This is because roundworms are getting all the nutrients from the food before that cat gets it. Apparently, a cat that is infested with roundworms might look fat. This is because the worms cause its body to enlarge.
Hyperthyroidism and diabetes both cause a huge growth in the appetite of your cat. Diabetes – because the body of your cat cannot convert sugar to energy, so the nutrients does not get into the cat’s body. Hyperthyroidism – because the metabolism of your cat is burning a lot of calories. Get your cat to a vet as soon as you can if it is always hungry, constantly eating but still isn’t gaining weight.
A cat is just like a human. If it is bored, they would eat. The answer to this issue is to give your cat more stimulation. You could also let your cat have a friend so he or she will not be lonely in the house.
