I am sorry to hear you are worried about your cat. How long has he been having diarrhea and vomiting after eating?

Weight loss is always concerning in a cat, especially an older cat.

This could be from inflammatory bowel disease, IBD, and he may respond to prednisolone. He may be hyperthyroid, and need to be treated with a medication called methimazole.

Sadly, cancer is also a concern in a cat that is vomiting, having diarrhea, and is losing weight.

The best place to start is a physical exam by your veterinarian, and discussing doing blood tests, or trying the prednisolone.
