My kitty lila

Hello !

My cat is about id say 4 years old . Recently i moved my wife on base with me and ended up moving my cat. My wife took her to the vet before we moved. Now here at our new home my cat is peeing everywhere , eats very little and will only drink running faucet water. She is very skinny and you can feel her bone structure and its worrying me. She has always been relatively skinny but not this skinny and im wondering if there is a problem with her.

Also i think the peeing is a factor of my wifes female cat being here as well (territorial thing) but who knows. Any help / opinions on how i can get my cat to eat/drink more would be appreciated as well as if you have any idea of a sickness that is maybe ailing her id very much appreciate it . Thanks in advance !

You've really got to take your cat to the vet again, pronto!! She needs blood work and a urinalysis to help determine if there's an underlying medical issue.

So there's now 2 cats living together that weren't before?

Do they get along with each other or are they avoiding each other, hissing, fighting etc. Is there any competition for food?

Were they introduced slowly to each other or just both put into the new house together?

Do they have places to go to get away from each other for a while?

I am also having a problem with my cat not eating well and was advised to give strong smelling food as their smell might be affected, like fish , it really worked for me.
