The lab results are back and he is one healthy 17 year old cat... no thyroid problems either. He does have some signs of possible kidney issues so doc gave me some powder meds to add to his daily meals. Doc said he eats alot because he wants to and does not gain weight! I'm jealous! He paces because he is a cat and chooses to, I can give him his "mellow out" herbs if he gets to loud at night. I am glad to hear he is ok though. I really love that cat!
