Why Is My Cat Always Hungry?

Why Is My Cat Always Hungry?

Cats aren't as driven by food as dogs are, so appearing constantly peckish, pleading, or whimpering for food in between meals may indicate a medical problem.

Why Is My Cat Always Hungry?

You can know when to visit your veterinarian and what to report by understanding how and when cats behave hungry.

Crying for Food at Scheduled Meal Times

Cats are more intelligent than you may imagine, and if you give them food at roughly the same time each day, they'll learn when it's time for a meal.

Whining for Treats

Your cat might come running over to you when you're standing where you store the goodies if it notices you there and it wants a treat.

Stealing Food From the Table

Cats are just like any other pet—and many people—who can't resist a tempting treat, so make sure you cover your food if you plan to leave it unattended.

Eating Quickly

Cats who have had to compete or fight for food are more likely to consume their meals quickly or ravenously. Some cats even grumble or growl while eating and seem to swallow their food without chewing it.

Eating and Vomiting

Vomiting is not uncommon to see in house cats. They groom themselves extensively so they often have a lot of fur in their digestive tracts, which can form a hairball.

Eating and Vomiting

If a cat is not able to pass a hairball in its feces, then the fur will either come out when your cat vomits or it will become stuck in its stomach or intestines.

Eating and Gaining Weight

If your cat is crying for food and is gaining weight, then this is a sign to you that you should feed your cat less, despite what it is trying to tell you.
