Controlling/Maintaining Your Cat's Weigh (and Health)

January is Cat Obesity Awareness Month.

Here are a few tips in order to help you reduce and/or maintain your kitty's weight:
-Feed moderately. It is ideal to have specific mealtimes for your cats so that they do not overeat by snacking on dry food that is always available to them.
-Feed them quality food. I find that when I feed my cats more wholesome food, it fills them up faster and is more satisfying to them. It is more expensive per bad; however, it tends to last longer than typical store-brand cat food, too.
-Exercise your kitty: If your kitty is an indoor cat, make sure he or she has plenty of toys to play with and spend time playing with your cat everyday. When you are not at home, having interactive toys available for your cat will encourage him or her to play in your absence.
