I am glad the kitkats are resting well. Sorry I am just now answering. My fatcat eats purina indoor cat formula. I don't want to change that because it keeps him from getting any hairballs. Before this food he got them all the time, now...zip. Absolutely none. It is supposed to aid in watching their weight as well. He gets the same brand of wet food in small amounts. I can't put him on too much wet food, it umm, to put it politely, *upsets* his digestive system, lol. I am focusing more on portion control with him. I put down a small but sustainable amount of dry in the morning which he just nibbles on through out the day till it's gone, and in the evenings I give him a very small amount of wet food (maybe 1/3 of the can), which he devours like it might get up and run away if he doesn't eat it fast enough, lol!
His weight is starting to stabilize rather than increase now. The reason he gained so much was because before about 4 1/2 months ago we lived with roommates who had a cat and dog. Conner, being the food hog he is, would sneak and eat the other cat's food, which was kitten food, so extra fatty. And not just that, lol, but he would eat the dog's food too. We tried to seperate it but always to no avail. Like his mamma, he has no self control!! So anyhoo, portioning his food more strictly and him not having access to any other food (since we live alone) has stabilized his weight over the past few months, I am hoping he'll drop a lb or two, but if not, it's not too much of a biggie!!
