Hello there. I'm new here, and I'm not sure where to start, so I'll just jump right in. I have a five year old cat named Thomas. I have had Thomas since he was eight weeks old (I knew the mother), and aside from a urinary tract infection four years back, he's always been incredibly healthy and strong. About a month or so ago, he started getting sick; he stopped eating, stopped drinking, stopped moving. I've taken him to the vet several times, and the first time I was given a couple different medications, plus an antibiotic. After two weeks of that, he was just as bad, if not worse. He never responded to the medication, and is continuously dropping weight. Nine pounds now, down from 18. He's lost so much of his muscle mass (cannot jump on the furniture anymore), and has a hard time staying on his feet for too long. And about roughly 90% of the day, he stays in one spot under my bed. I took him back to the vet, and now they want to do an ultrasound and an x-ray to check for cancers. I'm completely devastated over this...but what's most puzzling for me, is every website I've read through, I haven't seen anything on cancers in young cats. I'm sorry this is so long, but basically I'm looking for advice, and maybe come across somebody who is going/went through what I am now. Please help. Thank you.
