My 'son' is 13 1/2. Thank you. He's a typical orange shorthair- very friendly, not a mean bone in his body. The last 6 months have been tough on him as he had Hyperthyroidism. Had the I-131 done a month ago and we got back today from the vet's follow-up blood work. I'm hoping his T4 is normal now- it was 9.7 before the procedure! Resultingly he has another issue that we have to diagnose now, he is half his weight from September (8.3 lbs now, was up to 16 lbs then) and has the excessive eating/drinking & peeing/pooping still. But we had to treat the HyperT first as it is life-threatening. So we're probably looking at an ultrasound/biopsy soon to pinpoint this. I had to take on an extra day of work but I was glad I could.
He's my pride & joy!
