Should I be worried?

Have had my cat for 12 years. We recently moved to a shared house 3 months ago where she gets all the attention she demands, she was happily roaming outside and screaming at the neighbourhood cats within 3 days. So far so normal.

She has always eaten barely two pouches a day and picks at her dried food. Now she eats 3 pouches a day and a lot more dried food. She has put on a bit of weight. Is it just old age? Or is eating a lot more food a sign of stress?

Is she actually much heavier?

As Cozie says - weigh her and check whether she has actually put weight on. She may have a thyroid problem - these are very common in cats.
