Just as a long shot, consider using Revolution again. I guess I should have 
remembered this, but there is an immature phase of round worms, which move 
through the tissues (sometimes causing eye problems) and into the lungs.  
During the migration of the immature phase, they move into the lungs and 
causing the cat to cough harshly in order to cough up the immature phase, which 
then gets swallowed down, ending up back in the intestines all over again. 
Using Revolution will kill the mature roundworms in the intestines, but not the 
immature phase. Thus, one needs to use the Revolution for several months in 
order to catch all the worms in their various phases. Doxycyline has some 
negative effect on the immature phase, so using both might also assist.

I figured out this issue recently when a cat I had had for more than a year, 
was really losing weight, had very minimal hair growth (sort of stubby hair), 
and kept vomiting up her food. One day, while cleaning up the vomit, I noticed 
an adult round worm in the vomit. I couldn’t figure out how my cat would have 
had worms because I had deflee-ed her when she was just a tiny kitten, and 
treated her with the kitten Revolution. She was strictly an indoor cat, as all 
mine are, so there was no source I could figure out for a roundworm infection. 
I checked it out online, and finally understood that she still had a roundworm 
infection from kittenhood. Her sister also had lackluster hair growth. I 
treated both with Revolution and saw an immediate improvement with weight gain 
and hair growth. However, unfortunately, her sister got pregnant, and I also 
found out that the immature stage of the roundworm gets passed down to kittens 
through mother's milk - which must have been how both of them got it in the 
first place since I picked them up when they were only a few days old. Anyway, 
the rest of the mystery was solved because the sister got very sick while 
nursing the kittens - running nose, coughing, temperature, (and again, I 
couldn’t figure out how that could be, given that she wasn’t exposed to any new 
cats). The kittens also got sick, and had this TERRIBLE hacking cough and 
really badly infected eyes which NO topical medication would help, and no 
antibiotic helped UNTIL I tried the Doxycycline. 

Everything fell into place for me when I saw the worm in my cat's vomit, and 
did a bit of research. 

So, if possible, try Revolution again, and try some Doxycycline and see if that 
leads to any improvement.

Thank you pam,sandy ,ardy and all who weighed. in. on. the “ runs”.... 
 I’m leaning toward this being an autoimmune issue and will ask the shelter to 
have Tommy back to the vet for a better eval... Original recommendation was to 
use an antibiotic more common in livestock and aviaries ( tylosin) which was 
sound but did not take into account that my boy won’t eat his food with this 
foul tasting abx..... I’m reintroducing it..now.. but VERY slowly.... After a 
couple of weeks if I can’t get him to a full dose it’s time to change 
course.... He’s 15 years old and he can’t afford to lose weight or get 
dehydrated....  He’s a foster who was “ supposed” to be back with his owner 
well before now....but.... it looks to me that these guys are going to be a 
lifespan placement....
