Aww good luck to you and your adorable kitty!

If it helps, my gorgeous kitty wound up in intensive care at an emergency hospital when she was about 9 months old for a condition they told me would either go away, or kill her within a few weeks.  Knock on wood, but that was 3 years ago and with regular checkups she’s been fine ever since!  Good luck to you both, and I highly recommend pet insurance!  It helped me feel much better about knowing that if anything ever happened again I’d have some help with the bills.

He’s a cutie. As you noted, hepatic lipidosis (AKA fatty liver) can go either way, but the most important thing is to get him eating again. I like that your vet is going straight for a feeding tube – too many places will fool around forever with force feeding, but that’s often just not enough. I’m not sure what type of feeding tube your vet is comfortable using, but if Leo were my cat, I would prefer that he have an esophageal tube to a nasoesophageal – the former is tolerated a lot better and you can use it to feed gruel (watered down food) rather than just a liquid diet (as with the nasoesophageal). Plus, the esophageal tube can be left in for a longer period of time, just in case it takes a while to get Leo eating again.

Good luck – I’ll keep my fingers crossed for your little dude.

Aww, I really hope your little orange guy pulls through. I recently had to put my 2 yr old orange boy to sleep (don’t worry, he had something completely different), so I know how it feels to have a really sick cat.

I’ll keep Leo in my thoughts; and keep us updated!

Okay, he is adorable and I have *FAITH* that your vet (who is amazing By The Way for coming to you!) is going to do exactly what Leo needs to heal.  Vets are amazing. 

Just a year ago our sweet orange tabby, Bailey, was SOOo sick and we took him to the vet.  He ended up having to have surgery and stayed at the vets office for almost 5 days. It was so sad…Darling Husband is SOOO attached to our pets, he would make me drive by to visit him at all hours of the night!  Bailey is now completely fine, all healed and better than ever!

 I just believe that your vet can do the same for Leo.  Stress is a huge factor in cats’ health and once you guys get him stable, he is going to be fine!  **Hugs** – keep us updated, I will be waiting for results!
