A. If your cat was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism via a blood test, then this would not have anything to do with ingesting the Kalanchoe. If your cat is steadily refusing to eat and then tries...and throws up, he is clearly hungry, but something keeps him from eating. This could be bad teeth, ulcers in the mouth, severe gingivitis, and also an enlarged thyroid, that presses on the esophagus. You may want to get a referral to an internal medicine specialist, rather than risking your cat to go downhill. Your vet can recommend one and transfer the medical records. Or you can look here for a specialist in your area: http://find.vetspecialists.com/search_results?ttid=2&tid=9&location_value=
