sudden increase in appetite

Question:
So there are obviously reasons why a cat's appetite would suddenly decrease. But my cat has definitely started to eat more than she used to - it seems like her food bowl is running on empty much faster than it used to. The only thing that has changed is the location of her food - I moved it from the kitchen because our roof was leaking. If it was a dog, I could at least blame mice eating some of it, but I doubt that's the case with Squeakers, who has been known to pick flies out of the air.
Answer:
How old is your kitty? It could just be she's hungrier, or bored. But if you've noticed she's eating a signifacantly more amount and is not gaining or is losing weight, especially if she is older, you may want to bring her in for a check up as those are signs of hyperthyriodism. It could also just be cooler weather. My cats seem to eat less during the summer.
