Bella had been losing weight, and not eating much for days at a time. We took her to vets several times. They would give something — a new food, or probiotics, or a steroid shot — and she would eat for a few days or a week. Most recently, at Firehouse Belterra, we took a chance on a thyroid test. It showed hyperthyroidism. We have been able to get medicine into her since November 25, and she’s still eating!
Editor’s note: Bella is one of my favorites. She likes attention, but can be a challenging. Not a cat for people who take offense easily. She doesn’t like other cats, either.
