That's what I told her. This poor kitty has been through a lot in the past year. He was on the steroids b/c he had an infection in the mouth that spread down his throat. He couldn't eat or drink anything for months. They had him on so many antibiotics and nothing was working. He was on a combination of steroids, antibiotics & one more drug. He had a tooth pulled before this happened and we think he had an infection that went unnoticed by the vet. He went from 14 lbs to 5 lbs from not eating & is well over 14lbs now. I really hope it isn't diabetes but I can't think of anything else.
