    there are 2 cats, i large male Cody(14+ lbs) and his sister, Cheyenne, (11 lbs). Lately I have seen Cheyenne acting very listless and when I picked her up she feel underweight and bony. I noticed that Cody was eating Cheyenne’s wet food before she even got 1/3 through her 1.5 oz if food. I have now stopped that and make sure she is eating and she is eating most of her food about 80%. The only thing I haven’t see is any poop. This has been for about 2 days. She is peeing. Only poop has been his. How do I get her to poop?
