My cat, at her last vet visit a month ago, weighed 20 lbs. exactly. I have actually switched her BACK to DRY because of her constipation issues, which contradicts everything I've learned here. But I've put her on Orijen dry, which I think can't get much better (grain free) plus the best part is she's pooping every day THANK GOD!!!! and her recurring urinary tract infections have ceased. So I dare not change ANYTHING having to do with her diet. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. She's been on this diet for about 3 weeks. I still have to cut back on her portions. Do you know what Nyquill is? Picture the little medicine cup on top of that. She gets one of those in the a.m. and one in the p.m. The last few days I've noticed her waist which I've never seen before, so it must be working. But I don't have a super accurate scale so I can't weigh her unless we go back to the vet, and hopefully we won't have to go back for a very, very long time.
Yes, she acts like she's starving all the time but I know she's not. She's mostly just bored and hoping I'll drop a few treats on my way through the kitchen, something she hasn't had in over a year. But once her mind is off of begging, she is perfectly fine. The vet said you practically have to starve an inactive cat to get it to lose weight, and it seems like I am but I have to keep telling myself that she is NOT starving and to NOT give in to her whining.
