Why Is My Cat Always Asking for Food?


If you're not feeding your cat enough food, they may be constantly asking for more. Make sure you're feeding your cat the recommended amount.

Nutritional Deficiencies

If your cat is not getting the nutrients they need from their food, they may be begging for food in an attempt to get the nutrients they're missing.

Health Problems

If you've recently noticed your cat begging for food more than usual, it's a good idea to take them to the veterinarian to rule out any underlying health problems.


If your cat is bored, they may be begging for food as a way to get attention. Make sure your cat has plenty of toys and activities to keep them entertained.


Stress can also cause cats to become more hungry. If your cat is stressed, try to identify the source of the stress and take steps to remove it.


As cats get older, they may become more prone to weight gain.


Some cats are simply more food-motivated than others. If your cat is always begging for food, it may just be their personality.
