One Cat's Struggle with Feline Hepatic Lipidosis

Fatty liver disease doesn't only affect fat cats

In the fall of 2005, my cat, Cleo, came down with feline hepatic lipidosis, also known as fatty liver disease. In doing the research on it, I discovered that fatty liver disease happens when a cat, usually an overweight or obese cat, stops eating for whatever reason.

This article is a good reminder that feline hepatic lipidosis isn't restricted to obese cats — any cat who stops eating suddenly and drops a lot of weight is susceptible.
