Cleo's Progress

One Cat's Struggle with Feline Hepatic Lipidosis

Cleo still not eating as much

I blogged the other day about how nervously I've been watching over Cleo, and how afraid I am of another bout with feline hepatic lipidosis/fatty liver disease. She was eating her quota of one entire can of wet food every day, so I'd stopped worrying about it — but that changed 3 or 4 days ago.

I'm not positive how much she is eating every day now, but it seems to hover around half a can. She jumps up on the table and appears to want food, but when I put it out she doesn't eat it right away, like she normally would. Usually I'll find it's gone a few hours later, but because she isn't as enthusiastic about it, she is taking considerably longer to eat.

And yesterday, I noticed that she had stopped "asking" for food as much. (By that, I mean that she is not jumping up on the table to beg as frequently.) It's very worrisome!

I'm not sure what has caused this change in appetite, but if she doesn't regain it soon, I may need to take her to the vet after all. I definitely don't want her to develop a fatty liver again!
