Well...the cat went to the vet @ 3:30 today. The blood test confirmed Hyperthyroidism. The vet says in fourteen year old cats it is cancerous most likely. So far, we are out $60 for information I pretty much figured out myself. They are running a $40 test now to see how her kidneys are functioning. If that test turns out poorly, Daisy is done for. Should the kidneys be okay, we can opt for a $300 surgery and $15/ month medicine. That should be an interesting discussion with the wife. Waiting on the phone call about the kidney test at this point.
