You've gotten good advice to see a vet. Both of my FeLV cats developed lymphoma 
at an early age with the symptoms you describe. They both receive chemo (one 
for 20 months and the other for 3) and both are doing well. It is a scary 
diagnosis, but just wanted you up know that if it is what your kitty has, there 
may be hope!
