Hi, my name is***** am a veterinarian and would love to help you today. Dr. Welton is not available at the moment but I can certainly answer your question.I'm so sorry about your friend's kitty. There is a not a chance that the cysts will shrink without surgery and depending on where they are located, surgery may not be an option. Also, some of the cysts can be cancerous in origin, so drainage of that type of cyst would be a very short term fix.When kitties don't eat and are having problems with their liver they can also develop something called hepatic lipidosis - another liver problem. I guess the next step if you wanted to see if there are more options would be to go to an internal medicine specialist or to a surgeon.I would wait and see what the blood tests show, maybe some great improvements can be made with the fluids! Some cysts do not cause any issues and we can leave them alone and just monitor but it sounds like this kitty is becoming affected by them.Feel free to post any bloodwork results when you get them.I wish you both all the best.
