Only a vet can diagnose.
Anemia can cause cold. Are her gums pale?
Anemia can be caused by many things, including Hemobartonella, which one of my 
non-FeLV cats had. If it were that, she would die without meds.

Subject: [Felvtalk] Off Topic.  Very Thin 8 year old cat

I realize this is not a FELV+ question but this group has such wide  
experience and helped so much with Dixie, I just have to try.

I have a very thin 8 year old cat who is almost impossible to vet.  
She has lived in Mom's garage since she was a day old.  Recently she  
has gotten thin and appears cold.  I have heat lamps, a cat heating  
pad, Snuggle Safes and rice bags for her on top of rubber maid totes.  
I can't be sure what she is eating but there is always food available  
and I've added Pet Tinic to the mix. She has two cats who hang out  
with her.  They have all been neutered/spayed.  Tommy has had weight/ 
cold issues for at least 8 weeks.  She acts ok most of the time but  
there have been days that she looked like she was ready to leave this  
world.  I am trying chcken livers and anything else I canthink of for  
iron.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
