Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Diagnosed with Fatty Liver Disease
My name is Neeko and I was just diagnosed with Fatty Liver on Wednesday. My mum found a 2 week old kitten and brought it home to bottle feed and it stressed me out and caused me to stop eating! I spent the last two days in the hospital getting IV fluids, being force fed some A/D and getting some Pepcid and Periactin.
My mum was given the option of sending me to have a stomach tube placed or taking me home and trying to force feed me..she chose to bring me home! The doc sent me home with some Valium, Pepcid and Periactin. The valium makes me kind of sleepy but it makes me RAVENOUS to eat. My mum was doing a bit of research about Valium and it\'s affect on my liver and is worried about giving it to me now. Has anybody else used Valium with fatty liver kitties? I\'m getting 1mg of Valium in the morning and 2mgs of Periactin, and some pepcid in the evening.
Right now I\'m being fed 6CC of A/D every 4 hours to start. She offered me some tuna this morning and boy, was it delish! I love the tuna water! Mom is trying to sneak some tuna into my water to make it taste a bit better so I\'ll drink it. Right now she\'s poking me with 100mls sub-q once a day.. I\'m not too pleased, let me tell you.
I don\'t feel great and am pretty weak but I hope to make a full recovery!!!
