Hello, My name is Cathy and I am the proud owner of nine cats and four dogs. Actually, they pretty much own me. They are a lot of work but well worth it. I have two special needs kitties...one who is 13yrs old with cerebellar hypoplasia and a 17mo. old kitty with a liver shunt. I came across this site while searching for information about cats who have had surgery for liver shunts. My shunt kitty, as the vet calls him, Scooter, is the love of my life and I cannot imagine losing him. It absolutely terrifies me. Have been through so much with him since day one. We manage his problem with a special diet and medications and he does pretty good unless he gets into regular cat food which will cause a seizure. I am planning to have the shunt repaired in a few months and would love to hear from anyone who has had success with this operation on their cat.
