This will actually be my first post so I apologize if this isn't the right place for it, I tried a forum search with overweight cat and it didn't help much. I have had my cat Tweek since I first moved out of my parents house a few years ago, I got her as a kitten and we went through all the trials and tribulations together, she had mange (From my roomates cat) she puked on my bed almost every night, and than I brought her to the vet for her "Fixins" as we call it and most of her problems seemed to go away, no more puking, no more sickness of any sort really, than when she was about a year old she started to put on weight, I changed her food and her feeding schedule and her weight just increased, I was gone one night and my roomate was playing with her and when I came home Tweek was panting and wheezing so I yelled at my roomate and immediatly went to the Emergency vet, they told me that she had asthma. So aside from changing her litter and giving her pills on a daily basis her losing weight became my priority. Well she is two and a half now and I really can't get her to lose weight, We play all the time, but I'm afraid to push her too hard because I don't want her to have an asthma attack again, it was really scary for me and even more scary for her. I guess I could just get to my question since I've somewhat been rambling... is there any advice out there to help me help Tweek, she is 15-17 pounds and she gets fed once a day, and if there is still food left at feeding time I don't re-fill the dish. She eats nNatural Choice Indoor Weight Management food and we play for about a total of two hours every day. Thank you in advance for bearing with my long post and your help!
