MC is known for being one of our most objective (cough) members.  But I have 
to agree with her.  Are you sure your vet actually said this????

it's a major problem now that cats are living long enough for it to manifest! 
if you like the vet, keep him for vaccinations and things, but if he doesn't 
know about this yet, he's not whom you need for your dear.

as ever, objectively yours,

Subject: [Felvtalk] ot-next problem

    My cat Shaft has lost nearly half his body weight.  Everyone here has been 
so sick I just didn't realize it until a few weeks ago (a few days before I was 
leaving for a week's vacation).  I got him into the vet suspecting hyper-t as 
soon as I got back.  That's what it was.  The vet detected a heart murmer as 
well.  He is an estimated 18 years old.  He had a fever and the vet put him on 
some amoxy for that, as well as the tapazole, of course.
  Problem.  He now hides and I have to chase him around to get any med.s down 
him.  I've given up on everything except the tapazole and he still hides.  
Should I stress him out with the chase down?  Crate him for a while?  He 
doesn't seem to be gaining ANY weight, and I have an appt. with vet again on 
Monday.  We were supposed to wait a month, but he's getting worse, not better.
  Does anyone have the link to join the hyper-t group or any other advice?  I 
am quickly losing my mind. la la la la.
