Fabbie fab fab.

EXCEPT

my cat's nearly doubled in size since she started chomping on these six months ago.

I think they're full fat biscuits.

She's now got a BEER BELLY which sways when she walks!

Used to be a slim Dorris but all she does is hump her beer belly around very slowly, and sleep every second of the day.

I can't get her to play anymore, she's OBESE!

We only give our cat 1 or 2 of these a day

our cats have 4 a day.

Mine have about 8-10

Whoops (hang head in shame)

Can you provide the proof behind your claim please. Very interested to learn more.

My cat sits on the bed staring at me until he gets 5 of these before bed every night can't see what Harm just a few per day can make he doesn't drink or smoke lol

5 a day wont do any harm but fed as main meals cause kidney diesease (as does all dry food)

Really, I'm very surprised at that. Products that are sold worldwide by all pet stores and supermarkets cause kidney failure. I don't quite understand how that is possible?

profit margin is higher for dry cat food. dry food is generally very poor for nutrition too with most of it actually being just ash and very little meat content! Cats are obligate carnivores and only absorb nutrients from meat. Plus they dont drink as much as they should as they have a low thirst drive so dry food is very bad for kidneys etc as they dehydrate

healthypets.mercola.com/sit…spx

"Dehydration

Prey consumed by wild cats is about 70 percent water. Canned food averages 78 percent, and dry food averages 10 percent. Cats on dry food diets usually don't get enough water. They can become chronically dehydrated which contributes to health problems like Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) and urinary crystals."

Get off your soapbox Chocci and stop criticising, judging, patronising and attacking me.

You're doing it to the wrong person.

I refuse to stoop so low to insult you back, I have morals and I am not nasty.

End of.

I hate to say it but I and any other vet would recommend a diet if she is obese. Being slightly overweight is worse than being slightly underweight and it can lead to many further complications such as cardiovascular problems. There are special diet foods you can feed too where the amount that you feed is the same but the calories are a lot lower.

Remember these are treats and a complimentary food. We wouldn't eat lots of chocolate every day, well except at this time of year.

I hope you are not insulted or anything I am just offering my opinion.

You lost all credibility when you mention mercola I'm afraid. It is ridiculous to state a cat can become chronically dehydrated due to its diet alone. There are dried prescription diets that are proven to offer significant benefits. Your only option is to provide scientific studies showing your claim. If you think a cat is incapable of being thirsty and drinking more then you'd be mistaken.

Please do not read everything you read as soon as you read it on the Internet. Also ignore mercola.com

Thank you, I appreciate your advice.

As of yesterday, I have put her on a diet and have cut down her treats to 4 per day and upped her wet food.

I've ordered premium wet and dry cat food from a vet shop, not the supermarket stuff (nothing wrong with supermarket cat food), and have researched her diet plan.

I love her dearly and will keep a keen eye on her.

Shes a 'flat cat' and is way too scared to go outside for fear of a hearing a noisy car drive down the road! The Cat Shelter advised me not to force her to go outside because she's so nervous/timid. Hence, she gets NO exercise.

Thanks again for your advice, my eyes are properly open now.

No offence here!

Ok cool its just some people are unaware of these things. I rarely see Labradors who don't need to lose a bit of weight!

If you haven't already consulted with a vet, it might be worth while. Some scales to check your progress too will be useful. Also as harsh as it may sound, you may have to cut treats completely as they are quite calorie intense! However this depends how overweight she is and for how long. As long as you see progress then that's all that matters.

I agree, the best food is the one you can afford and one your cat will eat but of course there are better foods than others. I do hate when people moan that you are abusing your animals when you feed anything but organic chicken and rice or you are the devil incarnate if you feed a commercial brand to your animals.

My stray that I took in appears to be getting slowly more rotund so I will have to start cutting her food too methinks.

Another bit of advice is you can excercise her believe it or not. Try one of those pole teaser things which is a toy on a length of string. Slowly run it in front of her and move it past the side of her head just within reach. When you get close to her head quickly move it past her. Her instinct will be to chase it or at least move. Since I used them on my cats, I had never seen so much energy and excitement over a toy before and I get tired moving it before they do!

Thank you so much for your time.

We used to play but she got bored.

I made her a Krypton Factor style climbing thing with different levels, boxes to jump in and out of, there's even a 'catwalk' to her water bowl with gaps through it for her to navigate.

The plan is to go to the vet as you recommend, get advice, scales, diet, exercise, hide the carrier bag of treats etc.

She just tries to hibernate in winter, she's so bored in the flat all her life.

I'd prefer her to go out but she's too scared of noises.

I'm sure and hope the vet (you might see a vet first then subsequent weight checks might be with a nurse) will help and give you loads of advice for the problems you give such as helping reduce her boredom/lethargy.

The climbing thing is a great idea and you could keep adding to it or altering it to provide more variety if she gets bored easily. Perhaps a rotation of toys may help.

Your vet may have a cat behaviourist in the practice or they themself might be able to discuss things like helping boost her confidence.

Anyway well done for going to the vet and being proactive about this, I'm going to stop now and leave it to the pros. It will probably be a long struggle but the benefits to the both of you will be far greater.
