We have a two year old neutred male who I think has lost a lot of weight this spring. He seems otherwise healthy and is outside alot (we live on an acreage) He loves catching mice, gophers, etc. My friends think that he is just being active but he just doesn't look the same to me. Does anyone know why else he could be losing weight?

Take him to the vet for a check-up. Noticeable weight loss is something I would never ignore.
Also, if your cat is consuming all those critters, he probably needs to be wormed. Outdoor cats should be wormed regularly and have additional vaccs (although one could argue about the frequency) for the two main viruses cats get, rabies, etc.
