Aww, what a sweet photo!
I can well understand how upset you are, but really puzzled as why the vet isn't more helpful unless she truly do not know what's wrong with him. Cats will often start to hide away or remove themselves during the dying process, and eat less and less, until refusing all food and water. At that point they usually have only a few days left. A 3 lb. weight loss in a week is drastic and serious. It's possible he has an undiagnosed condition, such as cancer, which is becoming more common in our pets. A second opinion may or not be helpful at this stage, and you will have to observe and decide if he is suffering or not. It's a position none of us ever likes to face, believe me as you well know, and I've been thro it too many times as well! I pray and wish you and your sweet boy Noah all the best!
