Pandora is doing well on her antibiotics (even if she doesn't much like the taste of them), and the v-e-t just called with her bloodwork results -- NO hyperthyroid, and actually no problems at all. Her bloodwork is very good for a senior ladycat. Mum is very relieved.
Thank you all for your purrs and grrs. We know it has helped. :)
ETA: The vet thought Pandora might be hyper-t because she is so small and skinny. But she isn't, and mum is glad.

The mum here...Well, Pandora's not a very happy kitty at the moment. The vet was over today, and Pandora had blood drawn and (an attempted) urine sample (but she peed a bit on the floor, and there was blood, so the vet took some of that.) UTI, and possibly (after physical examination) a likelyhood of hyperthyroidism. But the blood results will give a bigger picture. So, Pandora's on antibiotics for the UTI, and I'm sure she'll just love that. It's liquid, but I don't know how it'll taste...
I had the vet in because Pandora had peed outside the litterbox twice in two days. She's the only cat of my three who has ever had UTIs before, and that's exactly the symptom she showed the first two times. (First time, she peed on me, lol). She now has 10 days worth of antibiotics, and I'll have to wait until next week to get the results of the bloodwork. I'm really hoping it isn't hyperthyroidism or anything else. Pandora's cuddling pretty close and I'm sure she'd love some purrs and grrrs from the blogosphere. :)
