    my cat is extremely thin. she's been going downhill for the past few weeks. i can't take her to the vet until tuesday. i've heard of people giving sick animals an "electrolyte solution" and it helping them some. does anybody know a "recipe" for once i could give my cat? or have any ideas on anything i can do to help her along until tuesday?

    A pinch of salt, a pinch of sugar, a pinch of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) in a glass of water. Is your cat peeing normally?

    She probably has a thyroid problem. Hope she gets to feeling better.
