Cat suddenly STARVING after being spayed
I got my cat Askua this past october, she is an orange tabby with white trim.
She is around 2 years old and I adopted her from a shelter unaltered.
She is a lovable and adorable cat. Well ok at least she WAS. I had her spayed on the 3rd of January as any good pet owner would, and things seemd fine for a 2 weeks or so. Then I noticed I was having to fill her bowl more than once a day. Then she was STILL begging for food by meowing anytime anyone went anywhere near her food bowl. I changed her diet to one of higher quality (Eukanuba) she was still starving, I was filling her bowl 3 times a day by this point. I switched her food again (this time weight loss eukanuba) bc I was concerned about her weight gain. This was the point when she started breaking into the food bag. I had to put it in a cabinet with a lock. I started feeding her small amounts 4 times a day, and things got worse. What was normally a talkative cat became an incessant meower. Everytime anyone went in to the kitchen near her food dhe would scream to be fed even if she had just gotten fed. Then she started eating anything that wasn't in a cabinet so we had to lock up all the food and put rubberbands on all the cabinets. Then she started urinating outside of the litter box and I took her to the vet who said she had a urinary tract infection and gave her antibiotics, which seem to have solved that problem, but, I also discovered that she had gained 2 pounds in 1 month! I asked the vet but he brushed me off and told me to give her diet food. She has become nearly impossible. She is quiet as long as no one is moving around but the minute me or my bf get up she is begging for food. She tries to eat anything we are eating, jumps on the table constantly while we eat, steals sandwich bits the minute your back is turned. Also the meowing, I can not underscore that enough! I'm going crazy! So is she. I feel terrible bc she litterally thinks she starving. What do I do? Can anyone help?
