Tell him he IS going to lose his cat if he doesn't get her to the vet immediately. There is most assuredly something wrong with her, and it might very well be something easily treatable, but not if he lets it go on for any longer. There are a number of health conditions (hyperthyroidism, diabetes, renal insufficiency, etc) that older cats are prone to that do not necessarily equal a death sentence. However, if left untreated, they are. And it's not a pretty death.
