eats more than ever,chews on side, weight loss and is sick quite often.Vet checked for diabetes,thyroid,parasites and said if saw blood results without seeing cat would think healthy 10 year old not poorly 18.Also seems spacey at times and other tmes acts just as before. Back legs also getting a little weak. Any ideas?


It sounds like your vet has covered most possibilities that I can think of, however, if I understand correctly your cat is 18 years old. I'm convinced that some cats get a feline version of Alzheimers when they get older because of my experience with our 21 year old (that has passed). The last year she did all sorts of bizarre things and it was the only conclusion that we could arrive at.

Sorry I couldn't help you.

Re. eats on side ~
by: joyfulsunrise

Is that the side of her/ his mouth ? May have infection in teeth. My 17 yr old developed teeth problems as he aged. I massaged his gums with one of those animal rubber fingers. He didn't mind. Soft food was all he could eat. He passed at 17 yrs.

If your cat is 18, I would just make him comfortable and enjoy his crazy ways ~ I think the first answer was right on ~ age whether human or animal brings on unusual bodily, emotional, and physical attributes.

I'll bet he's a sweetie ~ apology if I got the sex of your cat wrong ~
