8 signs that your cat is dying

5. Weight loss

Most cats lose weight as they get older. This is because their stomachs are no longer able to digest and assimilate protein properly, which leads to a loss of muscle mass. As a result, even if you think they are eating enough, you will notice that they are no longer gaining weight, but rather losing it more easily.

N.B.: Extreme weight loss can also be caused by diseases such as cancer, hypothyroidism or chronic kidney disease.
