Cleo's Progress

One Cat's Struggle with Feline Hepatic Lipidosis

No force feeding needed

When my cat stopped eating as much again recently, I was worried that I'd have to start force feeding her again in order to stave off another onslaught of fatty liver disease (feline hepatis lipidosis). Luckily, over the last couple of days she has started eating more again on her own, and is now back to scarfing down as much as I give her.

I also moved her food to a different location a few days ago: Instead of feeding her on the kitchen table now, I'm putting her dish on the landing on the basement steps. The dogs can't harass her or eat her food there. The downfall is that Prince, my other cat, can — but I'll just need to try to keep an eye on the food situation.

I've also been feeding Cleo more food at a time, fewer times a day. It seems to work out well.
