he is now 3 and is getting fatter and lazier by the day. we have 2 other cats who are just right (they are both girls) and are both a lot more active than him. they all get fed the same amount, a tin a day between them in 2 meals plus a small amount of bikkies.
any tips for getting a big fluffy cat to be more as active and to lose weight? ta
My cat was 6.3kg at her heaviest and is almost at her 4.5kg target! She is a big cat though. Vet advised me to cut down her dry food especially over time and she gets the equivalent of a pouch a day split into 3 meals and a small amount of dry food (Go Cat indoor) in a SlimCat (!) ball or hidden around the place. Minimal treats too. She's always hungry though but giving her small meals more often has helped.
She's quite lazy too, won't go outside, cat nip used to help get get more active but not so much now. I changed her food to Bozita a few months ago and she's much more active so might be worth a try feeding your cat higher quality food if you're not already? And finding what toys they like - mine will now & again play with actual cat toys but her favourites are plastic bottle tops to kick about and plastic bendy straws(plus finding stuff like pens, make up brushes, tops from things to steal & knock around!)
