When you have a pet it is important to make sure that you do what you can to make sure that they are healthy. Cats are some of the best pets to have because they are nearly self sufficient. They can take themselves to the bathroom without any help and can clean themselves.
This leaves little for us to do. In fact all we really have to do is fill their food and water bowls, clean their litter box, and give them some love. This makes is easy for us both. Still there are some cats that will eat too much food every day. This will cause them to gain abnormal amounts of weight.
The last thing that you need is an overweight cat. While they might look funny and a bit adorable it is not healthy for them. It is up to you to make sure that they lose the weight and get into shape before they start to have serious health issues.
The best way to help them is to get them off the couch and running around. Buy a leash at your nearest pet store. It is so weird to see someone walking their cat around the neighborhood – but it some of the best exercise that they can get. Just make sure that you wash them once or twice a week to keep the fleas off of them.
Change out the food that they are eating. Make sure you give them foods that will boost the metabolism and give them healthy fats. Also you need to decrease the serving portions that you give to them every day. That will make such a huge difference.
Try to find some great cat toys that they will love to play with. Find ones that will get them up and running around. If they have cat nip in them than you will know for sure they will be running after everything that you throw at them.
