Another story of feline hepatic lipidosis

The other day, I blogged about Bear, another cat with feline hepatic lipidosis. I like the idea of posting links to other stories of cats who survived feline hepatic lipidosis, so here's another: A forum thread from 2003, with the story of Marble's recovery from fatty liver disease.

Like with Bear, Marble had a feeding tube implanted. Her mommy took her to work with her every day so that she could feed her at two-hour intervals. This goes to show that you don't have to be self-employed or work from home, as I did when my cat, Cleo, developed fatty liver disease.

Marble started eating again on her own after a little more than 3 weeks. In comparison, it took me 4 weeks of force feeding Cleo. I think it's nice for people to know that it doesn't always take 6 to 8 weeks of force feeding in order to cure feline hepatic lipidosis.

If anyone else has stories of feline hepatic lipidosis or fatty liver disease that they want to share, please feel free to comment. I think it's important for people to know that this disease is completely curable!
