Cleo's losing weight!

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

Postby SpiritFngrz » July 6th, 2006, 3:32 pm

So I had brought up this topic before about cat nutrition. As much as I tried, she wouldn't eat the raw, so I went to the next best thing- canned food. She loves the Merrick and I've been inching that more into her diet and slowly inching out the kibble. This has been over the past month or so. I'm now starting to see a change in her, she is starting to look slimmer in her overall body. She still has a hang-belly, but I'm sure that'll take some time to lose.
This really works!! :clap:

My cat Faye is not fat, but she has really bad spay belly. :|

I just started them on EVO, they seem to like it.

Oh ok- the hanging belly is from being spayed? Does that ever go away?

Not that i know of. They cut right down the middle of the abdominal muscles and that makes the belly hang.

ALL of my cats ( males & females) have hangy bellies. :oops:
There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

I'm with Cheeky on this one, my male cats that were allowed to get fat had equally saggy bellies. Cats have a fat pad back there and I think they just concentrate most of their fat storage in that area first. It's usually the last thing to shrink when putting cats on a diet, in my experience anyway.

Sgt. Tibbs has a hangy belly too.

Gotcha...
I think she is on her way to perhaps losing it with this better diet.
