|This is Delyte. I have lost a tremendous amount of weight too, down from nearly 14 lbs at age 10 to my current skeletal 8.5. Ny person has been trying to control my thyroid for three years with the medicine that you rub on the ears but it doesn't seem to be working. I go back to the vet at the beginning of next month to have my values done againn. If I have to switch to the pill form, it is going to be a problem because almost any medication that I take orally upsets my stomach and then I stop eating which makes everything worse. She is very frustrated that something like thyroid is destroying me when it is controllable for so many. I am now too weak to go through the radioactive treatment, and in any case they would have to take me to St. Louis, 100 miles away in the car, and leave me there for several weeks. They don't think I would survive that. Plus I have shown some signs of confusion lately, and I am pulling out my fur on my rear. This getting old is really not any fun at all. My person is going to give me a big birthday party in two weeks, before the vet visit, so I have something to look forward to.
Lots of purrs to you, Winnie! Black cats rule, especially when they keep all of their beautiful furs and don't spread them all over the floor ...
