He just got a worm treatment a few days ago. His tummy seems big yet he is acting like he's starving up on the counters liking empty plates lol. I don't have any foil, I ran out. I will change this. But does anyone know why he is doing this?
It's the intestinal parasites that are causing him to be hungry. Was this his first de-worming?? If so, I believe he needs one more in about 3 weeks. You should see some improvement in the next couple of days. Feed him as much as he wants for now. Then cut back.

DO NOT BUY WHILE SHELTER ANIMALS DIE!!
Tape worms cause this! Be sure he had a de-wormer that also kills tapes! Some of them don't! BTW, tapeworms are caused by fleas, so also use a flea treatment on him. BE CAREFUL to use a good brand ... NOT HARTZ ... and make sure he is old enough for it. I would advise using Advantage ... available through your vet or an online pet supply company!
NOTE: a good dewormer that includes all worms (tapes included) is Drontal tablets! Three wormings about 2 to 3 weeks apart is a good rule of thumb! Don't get confused with Droncit ... that does tapes ONLY.

I use advantage and you can use this on kittens as young as 8 weeks of age. It goes by weight so you need to know how much he weighs. If he'll tolerate a bath you can also wash him with dawn soap and this will help to get the fleas off of him.Originally Posted by ashleycat
You have another cat and a dog right? You also need to make sure that they don't have fleas or you'll never get rid of them. Good luck.
If you start seeing anything that looks like rice on him or around his bedding then this means he has tapeworm and he will have to be treated for it.
