How were his liver values?   He isn't "yellow" at all (whites of eyes,
insides of ears)?  Just worry about hepatic lipidosis, the couple of
run ins we've had with it were very, very sick cats but a friend just
had a rescue who looked so good (also eating pretty well) they had no
idea she was jaundiced though there was yellow they were missing.

If so she should be on a SAME med like denosyl or denamarin and likely
some other supplements as well, with force feeding or a feeding tube.

I'm not an expert but wanted to mention--keep up posted!
