Ok.... so I took Marzi to the vet.

Marzi weighs in, on average between 13.5 and 14.5 pounds. He's a big boy.... normally.

Today Marzi weighs a mini 9.5 pounds. He's jaundiced. He's mildly dehydrated. They did blood work. I'm waiting for the panels to come back. They say the jaundice indicates liver malfunction on some level but they don't know how bad or if it's the reason he's not eating or if his not eating is the reason for the liver issues. His temperature is normal.
Panel on the bloodwork includes thyroid, liver, kidneys and white blood cell count.

On the bright side, he's not under my bed and he's eaten some canned food without having to be force fed. I'll keep updating.

Hope he continues eating and you get some good news about the bloodwork.

Ok guys.... thanks for the support. Marzi's liver's looking pretty bad from the blood tests that were done yesterday. One enzyme they tested for was supposed to be between 10 and 100 and was at 229 and the other was supposed to be between 6 and 102 and was at 450. He's been referred to an animal hospital.... I have a 9:30 appointment tomorrow morning (well I guess this morning) so hopefully this turns out well. Again, thank you to all those sending healing energy or good vibes or well wishes and thanks for the support. This is my baby.... I broke down in tears over this at work today.... no good when you work in a call center.

Ok.... animal hospital visit yielded me telling doctors that hospitalizing a cat that is eating to force feed him is RETARDED. They ran more tests. I got the results of those tests today... well sort of... my voicemail got them.

They said his liver results look better with this panel than they did with the last panel so HE IS IMPROVING!!!!!!!!!!!!! They think it's just stress that caused him to stop eating... so that's good news. No cancer and no infections... just need to make my house more zen.
