hi,

my name is john and i have some quesions.. my cat bailey is a 2 1/2 yr old scottish fold he has not been himself, his appetite is low, he is losing wieght.
he does eat and drink and goes to the bathroom.. he's not vomiting.. he is losing weight and looks weak, he walks funny.. we took him to the vet $500 dollars latter no answers.. when he was a kitten he had a heart murmur they did a sonogram then.. the last time we went to the vet it was gone but he had a bump on his intestines. another sonogram and xray and biopsy they say it is an enlarged lymphnode. but now he is losing weight and only eats a little bit. i try feeding as much as possible 3,4 times a day.. anything to help please??????:(

I guess a malignancy been ruled out, since a biopsy was done?

Here's an article on enlarged lymph nodes in cats.

There is also a benign condition:
