Cleo's Progress

One Cat's Struggle with Feline Hepatic Lipidosis

Slow recovery from hepatic lipidosis

Cleo didn’t keep much food down today, but I think it was rather my fault: I had slacked off on feeding her much earlier in the day, and so I think I tried clustering her remaining feedings too close together. Better luck tomorrow, hopefully.

I haven't posted many pictures lately, so I'm posting a few tonight. This is one of Cleo on Thanksgiving, when she was out and about, checking out the view outside the window. In the picture, she is just underneath the study window.

Cleo also likes to hide underneath my grandma-rocker from time to time. I have a couple of pillows shoved under there to try to keep her out, but she manages to climb on top of them. Oh well — having them there makes it easier to get her out again, as I can just slide her down off of them.

The pictures with Cleo's head poking out were taken today. Sometimes, she leaves her tail out too; it’s a classic example of "If I can’t see you, you can’t see me."

If I can't see you, you can't see me!

It seems like it could go on this way for a while: Cleo making small improvements while still needing to be force-fed and injected with fluids, and me washing lots of towels (they get dirty fast, from cleaning the food off her face as I feed her and mopping up what she doesn’t keep down).

It's worth it, though — she's my baby. Isn't she cute?
