Thank you for your advices, in no way would i want to depend on google for the answers. I'm currently residing in China because of work, and sad to mention, the medical scene and in specific for cats are lacking over here. For example. there aint any DNA testing for animals over here.

I had been discussing with my vet and he has yet to come across similar symptoms, and he had given the go ahead to try the potassium supplements as he dont see any harm if given in proper doses.

You will need a competent feline Veterinarian....I have no idea where in the world you are, so it's difficult to give you specific direction on that front...if there is a cat-only Vet or clinic accessible to you, that would be a good place to start.

With a competent Vet on board, it is helpful if we, ourselves, have an general understanding of the issue - in this case (apparently) potassium levels in cats - that is something many people can absorb from this plain-language coverage of the topic: All About Potassium (link) (For now, ignore the fact that this site is focused on kidney disease....the general principles covered there apply to all small cats)

Hope those two suggestions are helpful !
