Miss Melody has a problem (and also a really cute way of laying). She used to be our smallest cat, and now she is the second largest.
Cat obesity is the leading cause of health problems in cats, so we need to take action. She is already on a prescription diet for her weight, but it has had little impact.
Unfortunately, attention to her care has taken a backseat during Harree’s kidney issues. It’s difficult to get one cat to lose weight when you are desperately trying to get another one to eat anything at all. She gets stolen food here and there when I give extra feedings to Harree.
We’ve started weighing her weekly. And I’m going to try to implement a daily exercise routine.
I’ll update on our progress as we continue this process, and possibly share some strategies and tips I learn about cat weight loss.
