|This is Delyte. I am probably not one to give advice. I was diagnosed with hyperT three years ago, but I cannot take pills, so I get the meds rubbed on my ears. [I had surgery on my intestines 7 years ago and I have a very sensitive tummy and will stop eating if I am given any meds.] I am probably not absorbing enough of the medicine, plus my person is crippled and sometimes I make it hard for her by running away and hiding, so I miss doses of my meds. I am down to 8.1 lbs from my alltime high of 14, but I also have CRF, plus I am now 17 years old and arthritic, have bad teeth and all the other things old cats get. I don't think anyone expects me to recover or gain weight, they are just amazed that I am still here.
They wanted me to have the radioactive treatment or surgery, but they thought I was too frail to go through it. Plus living here, we would have to go 120 miles to St. Louis for the surgery or treatment and then stay three more weeks if I had the radioactive treatment. I don't travel well, to put it mildly, and my person doesn't either, and I don't think I could stand being away from home for that long. I am still eating huge amounts and frisk about occasionally, so I am in a holding pattern.
But you have recovered! Hope you can gain a little weight--thin and bony is not a good look for cats. Giant purrs to you and your person!
