HI, Rusty is my dear 15 year old tiger striped feline family member. He most likely has feline HyperThyroidism, testing is being done in less than a week for this. Thanks to a friend who is a member of this forum, I am here, and I was able to find a yahoo group dedicated to feline HyperT. It will be nice to network with others who love their cats, and to learn from each other. -Donna

I hope I am doing this correctly, I am supposed to make two new posts to gain full membership. I already made my intro and signed the rules. Can't wait to share with the others here! -Donna

Thanks, Shan. I am taking Rusty in for testing this weekend. When i get the results and a plan for treatment I will be back to discuss this. I have been reading up on feline hyperT and i am armed with information for my visit to the vet.

Thank you Picasso. My best wishes to you and kitty also, and welcome to the forum. I got a message from my vet yesterday (I was at work) the test results show that Rusty is HyperT . I hope to hear back from the vet today before I go to work. I hope they are willing to start a low dose of methimazole since they said his kidneys are smaller than they should be and that he likely has kidney disease. Have you started treatment for your HyperT kitty yet?
