Portrait of Dot Kitten and Friend
Dot is one of the cats in the family who does not blog. She is our Founder Cat Dash Kitten’s sisfur, and is 10 now…..
Dot had been told to lose weight by the vet as she was tubby (OK too heavy…). The vet said if she did not, Dot risked diabetes and daily injections of insulin later on, so Mum and Dad determined to ensure she lost weight.
How do we get Dot Kitten to lose weight?
We stopped giving everyone Surfing Turfin treats which seem to be higher in calories, and instead, have bowls of Nutro Weight Loss Adult cat, Orijen dried (from Canada), and a regular supply of Royal Canin ‘Exigient’ Savour as this is everyone’s favourite. Dot does not eat much wet much wet food, but enjoys some now and again, as a special teat.
As a result, Dot is losing weight, and is more active and engaged than she has been. This is very positive!
Dot Kitten and Friend Get Active!
We found that, just like humans, one of the best ways to get Dot to lose weight is to encourage her to be active. Children might play ball games, Dot chases Mr Red Dot, or our new Schru and this is a big benefit.
We all need to be conscious of our weight don’t we?
