I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that I'm not allowed to use the phone when corresponding with customers. Severe weight loss and hair loss are important symptoms but they're not pathognomonic of any one disorder. Such a presentation indicates a thorough physical exam including diagnostics in the form of blood and urine tests and imaging in the form of X-rays or ultrasound. I understand that you didn't come to the site to be told to bring your cat to his vet but I, too, would need to examine Thunder in the manner in which I described above in order to clarify what's going on with him. Please respond with additional information and further questions or concerns if you wish.
