Reaching Your Cat’s Ideal Weight
If your cat seems to be overweight, here are some tips you can use to help her reach her ideal weight:
1. Cut out all human scraps that your family may be feeding your cat.
2. Limit the treats you're feeding your cat. These are often excess calories eaten on top of an already fully balanced diet. Excess treats may also make her lose her appetite for nutritionally balanced food. Remember that the caloric intake from treats should not exceed 10% of a cat's total daily caloric requirement. If you give your cat treats, you should reduce the amount of food you give her accordingly.
4. Introduce extra activity and play into her daily routine.
Keeping your cat at the right weight is important. We hope you find these tips helpful as you steer your cat to a healthy weight!
