Please, i need help on this, my big male cat is becoming thin, and he has this yellowish color around his eyes and gums. He has excessive thirstiness and his urine is yellow. I don't know if he has disease, and i don't have enough money to visit a vet and to make him check.Im so worried about it. Can i ask if i have a remedy that i could see at home to help him, or there is no choice but to visit the vet to save him. Response is really appreciated. Thank YOu.

Excessive thirst is a bad sign, as well as losing weight. It sounds like he's really sick to me and needs to go to the vet to find out what's wrong with him asap. Perhaps you can call a vet's office or investigate on the internet to find out what's wrong by listing his symptoms. I know how expensive the vet is and I know how hard it is to watch a pet suffer or to lose them. I have been through it. My mom's cat had excessive thirst and was losing weight and he had to be put to sleep. I'm sorry to say, I believe the vet is your only chance to save him or find out if he can be saved. I don't think there are any home remedies.

Yes, i think it is better to see the vet. I had search on the internet that it is a possible sign of diabetes, I wish it is not, and visiting to the vet is a bit expensive. I should make a decision sooner.Thanks for the response!

your cat has a disease that he really needs a vet. it cannot be cured by first aid. Maybe you need to withdraw a little cash to save the life of your cat. Believe me, its the best remedy.

This sounds serious to me and if you want to save your cat you need to see a vet - this doesn't sound like something that can be fixed at home.
