Very important portion controlled meals and consistent daily schedule.
Do not serve your pet an all day buffet. Feeding two portions-controlled meals a day, one in the morning and one in the evening at about the same time each day. Feed cats separately in multi cat households.
Not only will the right food help with weight loss, it will make your feline companion much healthier for the long haul. Your cat is a carnivore whose instinct is to hunt for food. In the wild your cat would hunt and catch one, two, or even three mice a day depending on the age and metabolic demand. Hunting is not grazing.
Make sure your cat has things to climb on, like a multilevel cat tree or tower. Invest in a laser toy. Cats like to hunt therefore choose toys and activities that appeal to your cat’s stalking instinct. Drag a piece of string across the floor in view of your cat or ping-pong balls.
Let your cat out into the fresh air, this stimulates the senses, and gets the paws in direct contact with the ground. A fully enclosed porch or patio area prevents your cat from getting out and other animals from getting in.
