Is it normal for cats to lose some weight in the summer?

My indoor/outdoor cat is losing weight but we have him on a diet so that's to be expected. However, my strictly indoor cat has unexpectedly lost a small amount of weight (she looks healthy) even though she is eating the same as before.



She's not at all lethargic and I haven't noticed any other health symptoms such as urinary issues. Is it just related to the change in season? Also my mom wants to switch her to a "heavier" food. Is that necessary?

well it could be he's more active in the summer or he shedding his winter coat. though if he makes a huge weight loss and you see his ribs or he is super skinny or skin and bone skinny you should take him to the vet.
