17 yo DSH, always small cat, max wt maybe 8-9 lbs when young. Down to 5lbs a year ago. Probably 3 now. Severe muscle loss, just bones and fur. Diagnosed hyperthyroidism
about 1year ago. With very early signs, kidney
disease. Tried the gel medication for thyroid for a couple months but cat reacted negatively to same . Went into hiding and this has been and still is a very personable, people loving cat. She follows me constantly, talks all day....has since kittenhood. Stopped the med and she returned to her personable, playful self. She is still able to jump on counters and even top of cupboard in kitchen. Our problem is she is ravenous, eats 4x/day...... 1/2 can , small can of Fancy Feast, and within hour is crying for more. Dry food
always available and she still is able to chew/eat same. Don't want to take her back to the vet as she just goes bonkers. I do give her boiled chicken occasionally, but have noticed lately that she does not seem to do well the day after. Chicken is her favorite ...... I had noticed if we gave her chicken, braised, from grocer or deli chicken that she really seemed unwell the day after so started boiling chicken but past couple times she seems listless,unwell the day after that, then rallies again the next day. Any suggestions for the appetite. I am sure there is no way to help her gain weight, she didn't while on the thyroid med.
