Okay, so I have an almost 18 year old cat names Scruffy. She use to eat normally, use the littler box normally, meowed in the morning A LOT, and would run crazily around the house at least every other day. Then about a week ago, she just stopped eating (she eats a little once a day), stopped running around, stop meowing like usual (she only did it in the mornings with my dad), she uses the litter box still, and she sleeps a lot more. Well, she's always has been a little thing, probably the runt of the litter, but now she's just fur and bones. Yesturday she peed and poo-ed on the floor and she started to smell so we gave her a bath and that's when I could really see how skinny she really was. She has about 3 inches of fur on her back, so it's hard to see. So what I'm asking is what is going on? Is she just slowly dying or is she sick? She sometimes goes outside, but just stays next to the front door and maybe goes at the most 3 feet away from it. Thanks!
