The doctor says I am obese and need to go on prescription cat food, but my mom can't afford it. Any ideas of low cost food to help me shed some pounds? I am 22 lbs!!


Do you have- food?

My goodness Wrigley!! You are a big one! But beautiful! I am a little overweight, too, at 10 lbs. My mommy says now I can only have about a half a cup of dry food a day with lots of water. She even has been taking me outside with a harness and leash a few times a week. I sometimes get upset with her,because I am sooo hungry, but I also know that if I am a good girl she will suprise sometimes with a treat. Keep me posted and let me know what cool stuff your mommy does!!

Burmese tend to be lead butts. Grim is a mix and is around 15 pounds needs to lose a lil weight. I just lower the amount of food he gets and play chase games with him to get extra excersize.
