13 year old cat drinking lots of water and peeing extensivley
My cat, who is 13 has been drinking lots of water everyday and peeing it all back out within a couple of hours in and outside of the litter box. She seems to be eating normally. I just noticed a growth today on the right side of her face and she is starting to really lose alot of hair. It is my son's cat when he picked her out of a litter.
I know the time is coming on what we may have to do, we cant see her suffer. Any advice?
well thirteen isn't that old for a cat, my cat was 17 before we had to let her go and she led a full and active life up until then.
It sounds to me like she may have either feline diabetes. See here for more on thisfeline-diabetes.html
Or perhaps a thyroid condition, please see this page for more on this conditioncat-thyroid
both of which are treatable.
i am not sure what the growth could be, it may have something to do with the thyroid condition.
you will need to take your cat to a vet as soon as possible. test will have to be carried out to determine the exact cause and a way forward can then be agreed.
best wishes kate
