Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) Has Flea had any bloodwork? 2) Is she urinating religiously in the cat box? 3) Is she declawed? 4) How is she eating? Any decease in appetite? 5) Any vomiting or diarrhea? 6) How is her weight? same? decreased? increased?
Although she's hard to catch, it would be wise to have bloodwork performed on her. If you're unable to do this on your own, consider hiring a mobile vet to come to you and obtain her within your home with their staff. With her weight decreasing, having no energy to move, using the bathroom outside of the box, etc. these symptoms all indicate that something is wrong medically. At her age, we would want to check for liver disease, kidney disease, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, etc. which can easily be done through bloodwork. Once diagnosed, treatment options can be discussed and can then begin to start making her feel better once again.
