All right, since the dog food thing has been raised, I'm going to ask for some advice for my cats.
We have three and they are a P.I.T.A. to feed. They all have their own dishes and we ration their food because we have been trying to put the middle
kitty, Peeps, on a diet forever now. But nothing works.
To start, I have three cats:
1. Missy: older female around 10, hyperthyroid and being treated for it. Thin as a rail and will steal anything she can get ahold of that's vaguely
2. Peeps: middle-aged female 5 to 6ish, getting scary obese. Refuses to eat in a room by herself.
3. Teddy Bear: young male Ragdoll about 3, just about perfect weight.
Peeps and Missy are the problems. We need to put Peeps on a diet, but we can't change out her food. They all get a morning measure of standard cat
kibble in the morning, different amounts for each and none more than Teddy's heaping 1/3 c (he's a beast). And in the evening, they get a bit of wet
We tried to put them on a no-grain, high protein kibble to jump start Peeps' metabolism after her diet stalled. But she immediately came down with
bladder problems. This happened both times we tried it. So we're back on grain kibble.
She won't eat if we try to isolate her with her own food. She's convinced that the others are getting something really good that she needs to have
her nose in ...
At any rate, I am at my wits' end with her. How do we get her to drop weight especially since we can't put the other two on a diet? They don't need
it and Missy really doesn't being hyperthyroid.
