Keep a close eye on how much he drinks and eats. HyperT cats generally have increased thirst, and also eat more but lose weight. Sometimes they also become hyper, their coat gets dull and scruffy and sheds more, and they may even start yowling for no apparent reason. But 10% of hyperT cats have no symptoms at all, so it would definitely be a good idea to have a T4 and Free T4 done in a couple of months or so.
