My 5 year old male cat has been devouring his food in the past couple weeks, then begs for more. He has never done this before, should I be concerned?

A simple reason could be if he has internal parasites but certain diseases could also be a cause, a trip to your vet may be nessessary.

I agree with Mary (below). There could be a medical problem (e.g., thyroid) that is causing excessive hunger. Please take your cat for a veterinary exam!!!
