I cannot believe I am lettin' my mom put this here. So embarrassing! Here is the deal. Before I did my vanishing act last year, I weighed in at about 18 pounds. Mom wanted me to lose weight, but if I did not get munchies at home, I'd eat out. She found out during my missing time that two other families were feeding me! That is like 6 meals a day (heaven!). So, I come home 3 pounds lighter. Now I am inside only so no more other families feedin' me. You think I get slim (or at least stay the same). No way. She hasn't weighed me, but knows I am at least back to my 18 pounds and probably more. She ration my food, try to keep me outta the other guys food. If left to my devices, I will steal their food (especially Miranda and Lottie). So, Mom try to keep me to my own, but weight still comin' on. So, maybe it be a lack of exercise. I lay around all day. Since she heard about the poor 39 pound kitty, she startin' to worry. My diet is 1/3 cup Royal Canin 30 for kitties with crystals in their pee, with 1/8 cup Friskies Special Diet wet added, cause she heard kitties on dry food get more fat.I get that two times a day. So, anybody got ideas? I am four and she worried at the rate we goin' I won't live to be six cause of weight. Good grief, ma, this is soooo embarrassing!

We've all been doing really well eating an all moist food diet. Not sure if that's an option but we've been all losing weight at a slow, but steady pace.
Mom's can be so embarrassing talking about fat cats, well let me say if I were to talk about her weight I bet I would surely go hungery.
urrrgh! that stoooooopid error 4! that was me Tiny not alley up there talking over an over.
Linus my sweet baboo I miss you!!!! MMMMMHHHHWWAAAAA! I will pinch your little chubby hips, MOL.
You need more protein buddy. Any chance she can get you a better wet food than Friskies? The protein level in that is not enough to give you energy whatsoever. Also timed feeders for the dry food are pretty good if she's not home to feed the dry. Is that special diet Friskies gluten free sweetie? If not, THERE IS YOUR PROBLEM. Well, part of it. the protein also.
I used to weigh 18 pounds too! The one thing that made me lose weight was getting an inside dog, having a buddy to play with made me exercise more.
Mom been using the special diet cause she tryin' to keep me from gettin' blocked up again. Not sure what to do foodwise that will keep me flowin' but help me get what best to lose some weight. Jezebel, thanks for the dog idea - but no thanx. Had one of them once. I really liked Harley, but with six kitties in the house right now I think mom would go bonkers if we brought home a dog, too! How do I know about protein and glutenfree and stuff?
Hi, Linus. Lots of good info about getting kitties to lose weight at catinfo.org. And Teebo - glad to hear you're all losing weight! Mom's story will be coming out in just a couple of weeks and you're in it!
