Our question this week was:

My cat Bright Eyes is going to be 2 years old in August 2008 and he only weighs 7 pounds. Should I be concerned?. He will only eat dry Purina cat food.

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote asking if your 2-year old 7 pound cat was "okay". If your cat is eating well, no vomiting, normal bowel movements, playful and active and maintaining the 7 pounds, then I think all is well.

If there are any abnormalities - then I'd worry and have him examined by your veterinarian.

Best of luck!

Dr. Debra
