Of our four cats, Sylvester is the oldest. We don't really know HOW old, since he adopted us when he was already full grown. He's been quite healthy for the past ten or twelve years. But now he's losing significant weight and yet he eats as much as the other three cats combined. He doesn't throw it up. His poop looks normal compared to the other cats. If we could afford to take him to the vet he would have been there months ago.
His urinary function seems fine. He doesn't hide in corners the way some sick cats do. He's not losing an abnormal amount of hair. He still insists on his privileges as Senior Male Cat among the other three.
Would any of you have any idea of what his problem could be? I've been through our cat health books and checked things out online, but the symptoms of losing weight and over-eating just don't bring up any diagnoses.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Sounds like you have gotten some very good advice. Check around for financial help with animal care. It is available. We are fortunate here in our community, to have a vet willing to offer services at a discount to people who adopt stray animals. A few years back I had five cats---all female---nuetered and paid $250!!! Silverbellewww.aarp.org/community/editor/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/msn/heart.gif" />
