Overweight cats are at risk for diabetes, arthritis and a shorter lifespan. So here’s how to help your cat slim down:
First: Count their kibble. Just 10 extra pieces a day will add a pound to your cat in a year, which is like a woman gaining 15 pounds. So use a measuring cup.
Better yet, try canned food. Compared to kibble, it has fewer carbs, more protein and added moisture. And it’s a fixed serving.
One last cat-dieting tip: Don’t give treats out of guilt. Like, when you get home after being gone all day. Instead, play together for 15 minutes. You’ll both get a calorie-free mood boost AND exercise.
