Is it normal to be able to see / feel a cats spine?

I've seen a lovely chatty cat twice now, but he seems very thin. Lovely fur, doesn't appear to be a stray.

But I don't know what's normal thin and what's too thin and whether I should cat nap it and take it to the vet.

Wannabe. That's exactly why I checked here first, as I don't want to "steal" someone's poorly pet if that's the case. I've asked around and no one knows who it belongs to.

I'm going to pop the pic on my local Fb page, as another thought is it may have got itself lost.

The cat is in mid-walk in the photo though...so it's not really a clear indication of it's state of health.

No, nothing is one hundred per cent sure, but to me it has the look of an ill cat. As I said I see a lot of ill/starving cats and you just get to recognise the look. I'm not saying I can't be wrong but it's certainly worth checking out.
