So, our vet had to do some digging around and asking of experts.

Trevor has elevated protein levels (we discovered this at the time of the potassium thing). By "elevated" we mean they're roughly 40x what they should be. Yeah. 40. The proteins are coming from his body attacking his muscles. Clearly this isn't common in cats. Basically his is a condition that's found more often in people than in cats, but it's not like it can't happen. BUUUUT. Bottom line is that it can be a tumor near his digestive system. Malignant or benign, we dunno. But the tumor theory is just that: a theory.

So, then, the vet gave us some testing options: We could have the $1000 .... whatever scan, the $500 MRI scan, or the far more accurate $30 blood test that has $45 shipping to Tennessee.

I shit you not, he gave that list of options to my mom to pick from.
