  2. My Fiona is a beautiful tuxedo with the cutest white “cheeks”. Unfortunately, she is very overweight and weighs around 18-20 lbs. The problem is that she is very inactive. She is the original ”fraidy cat”. I rarely can even get her on my lap and I’ve tried more toys than you can imagine. If I can’t get her to be more active, I want to at least control her weight with a diet. She eats one can of wet food (5.5 oz) plus 1/4 cup of dry food each day. What can you recommend to get her to a healthy weight? Thank you so much.

    1. First of all, it sounds like Fiona is a lovely cat with a unique and adorable look. It’s great that you’re concerned about her weight and want to help her maintain a healthy lifestyle.

      One thing to keep in mind is that weight loss for cats can be a slow process, so it’s important to be patient and consistent with your efforts. Here are a few suggestions that may help:

    2. Reduce the amount of dry food you’re currently giving her. A quarter cup of dry food per day is a bit on the high side for a cat of her size and activity level. Try cutting back to a tablespoon or less, and see if that makes a difference.
    3. Consider switching to a lower-calorie wet food. Many brands offer “light” or “diet” options that are formulated to help cats lose weight. You may also want to consider feeding her smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day instead of one large meal.
    4. Encourage more physical activity. Even if Fiona is a bit on the shy side, there are still ways to help her get moving. Try hiding treats around the house for her to find, or invest in a few interactive toys that will keep her mentally and physically engaged.
    5. Make sure she’s getting enough water. Cats that are overweight or inactive may be more prone to dehydration. Make sure her water bowl is always filled and easily accessible.
    6. Consult with your vet. If you’re still having trouble getting Fiona to lose weight, it may be a good idea to schedule a check-up with your vet. They can help you determine if there are any underlying health issues that may be contributing to her weight gain and recommend a plan of action.
    7. Remember, weight loss is a gradual process and it’s important to keep in mind that you want to help Fiona maintain a healthy weight rather than losing weight too quickly. With patience and consistency, you can help her achieve a healthy weight.
