Kitty’s Ready! Healthy Snacks For Your Cat
As many cat owners know, one of the biggest challenges that face cats today is obesity. In fact, it has almost become an epidemic! According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 60% of cats in America are overweight. While this is an alarming number and should be a concern for every cat owner, with a few simple changes, you can keep your furry friend’s body as fit as a fiddle (and even better).
There are many things that we, as cat owners, can do to help our cats live a healthier lifestyle. This starts with watching their food intake. If your cat is showing signs of obesity, then don’t worry! There are ways you can help your cat shed some of those extra pounds!
For example, give your cat lean meat if they seem to be eating too much of the high-fat meats. You can also try giving them vegetables and whole grains for a tasty snack.
You can also try steaming or baking green beans, which will keep their calories down but still provide a savory treat! These are just a few examples of what you can do to help your cat stay healthy and fit.
While these tips are great if you want to encourage your cat to lose its extra weight, you shouldn’t try to force your cat to follow too stringent of a diet. It is possible for a cat to go on a diet, but it must be done with care and understanding on your part.
Keep an eye on your cat’s weight as well, which will make it easy for you to tell if they are losing weight or not. If they aren’t, then you can try changing their diet just a little bit so they can lose a just small amount of weight
