Hello, a cat I got about 4? months ago is not gaining weight. She had some mouth issues (not affecting the amount shes eating) that we are still treating but no other health issues. She has no parasites, or diseases of any sort. She's fairly thin, I cant see how thin she is as shes longhair but her bones are easily felt and shes quite small for her age (2 years) her son is obese but definetly a bigger build, her daughter on the other hand is also small but not underweight. She eats high quailty kitten food, boiled egg or raw egg yolk, has extra meals and kmr. She gets tiki kitten (decent calorie), weruva (low calorie), natures menu (high calorie), some carnilove (decent calorie) and some wellness core (as an occasional meal) she also gets (unfortunately) one dry food meal per day which has kmr added to it, orijen cat and kitten. Previous owner says shes "always been like this" and that she got kittens at 8 months. She gave birth to another set of kittens before we got her (2 kittens, I am unsure if there are any others) but i decided to have my mother cat nurse them instead as their mother didnt seem to be able to handle nursing them. The underweight cat lives at my friend's house and visits us twice a week. She doesnt vomit but has smelly stools and occasional diarrhoea.
