My 7 1/2 year old tom cat seems to be showing signs of anorexia/bulimia. He will eat and then throw up right afterwords. Behind his rib cage, he is rather skinny, although there is no rib bones sticking out in a bad way. (he has always been a thin and very active cat). I have also noticed that he has been picking at his front paws quite a bit to the point where the fur is bitten off in some spots. At first i thought that he was picking at scar tissue from when he was declawed as a kitten. He has always had food available to him, as week keep his dish full 24/7. He is also on a special urinary tract prescription diet from our vet. If anyone has any ideas as to what could be wrong I would greatly appreciate it. If anything is wrong with him, i'd like to beable to get it under control before it worsens! Thank you!
