My daughter's cat
My daughter's cat weighs 18 pounds, and should weigh 15 pounds or less. The Vet has seen the cat and recommends that she put it on a diet, but my daughter does not care for the recent Vets she has seen, and does not want to buy food from the Vet.
She said she has taken her off of dry food, and gives her no treats. She gets plenty of exercise, but my daughter wants to know how to reduce the amount of food so that it won't hurt the cat. A vet a year ago told her how to do it, but they have moved, and she wants me to ask you.
I think my daughter would like to know what is a reasonable percent to reduce the food daily, and not hurt the cat.
She sent me a picture of the cat, and it is really fat. I don't know how to reproduce it here, and have been rather busy anyway. I think I can copy paste it into our picture file, send it to Picture Trail, then move it here. That is a lot of trouble. Trust me, this is a fat cat. She is an adult and is maybe 6 or 8 years old. She has always been fat.
Do you have any suggestions and do you have any warnings? I only have dogs and they are 78 and 87 pounds, so I cannot relate to her problem. When they gain weight, it is easy to reduce their food.
I would appreciate any suggestions you might be able to come up with in this rather awkward situation.
