Customer Question

My cat is 16. For a couple of months she was eating like she was going to starve. She would even still food off my plate. Yesterday she just stopped eating and has not had anything to eat. A friend said cats her age could have thyroid problem and this would cause the strange eating. She also is having trouble seeing and stays in one spot.

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your kitty! Can you tell me if her water intake or urinary habits have changed? Has she lost any weight?
