Mac the Cat – Weight Loss Chronicles, Day 39
September 28, 2018 –Day 39
Weigh in: 19.8 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 0.5 pounds
After a month of this weight loss stuff, I’ve lost a half pound. It doesn’t seem like a lot, but I can tell in the way my collar fits that I’m a new cat.
One of the tactics I’ve tried to keep the weight off is drinking more water. Just like humans, proper hydration is important for cats. The people I work with at Klein keep my water dish full at all times, which helps me feel full when I’d rather be eating more food out of my bowl. It’s also more fun to knock over a full water bowl multiple times per day.
I don’t have access to other kinds of food at the clinic, but if you live with dogs (I’m sorry), make sure their dog food isn’t always sitting out where your cats can eat it. Anything we can do to drive our canine friends crazy, including eat their disgusting food, is motivating to us. So keep it away and we’ll have less to bother them about and won’t gain extra pounds from consuming more meals.
If you have questions about cat weight loss, you can always call Klein. The people here seem pretty interested in making sure pets are healthy and all that stuff. I hate to admit it, but I like it here. Being around people who care about my health isn’t so bad after all.
