How to get a cat to lose weight naturally

Are you concerned about your cat’s weight? We may love feeding them, but sadly a fat cat is at an increased risk of developing diabetes, hepatic lipidosis and osteoarthritis.

We have listed some simple steps to help lighten their load:

  • Feed a complete light diet:  James Wellbeloved has two tempting light diets specially formulated to aid weight loss
  • Encourage exercise:  Tap into your cat’s natural hunting instinct by promoting play, via rod based toys or small cat safe balls, which naturally burn calories.
  • Weigh our their food:  Use the feeding guidelines on pack to work out the right amount of food for your fabulous feline.
  • Feed little and often:   Cats naturally like to eat small meals so divide their daily allowance into 4 or 5 small meals.
  • Use interactive feeders:  Simply providing food in a bowl means your cat can quickly consume their food. Making use of puzzle feeders will help stimulate your cat and slow down food intake.
  • Track those treats:  A few treats can quickly add up, providing unnecessary calories!
  • Weigh your pet:   We can become blind to our pet’s weight, so fortnightly weigh-ins will help ensure that their weight loss is on track. Remember slow and steady weight loss is key. Too rapid a weight loss can be detrimental to your cat’s health. Refer to the feeding guidelines for further guidance.
