Q: Chubby Kitty

One of my cats has put on a fair bit of weight lately, and exercise isn't really seeming to help. Can anyone recommend a good diet food that will help get my girl back to a healthy weight?

purina one has a healthy weight formula and it works awesome as long as you follow the amount properly. also is she spayed?? if not i'd take her to the vet to make sure she isn't pregnant and also you should take her to the vet because she could have a medical problem that is making her gain weight and not be able to get it off no matter how much or what kind of food she's on.

My one cat is like that too. She's very lazy though. I recommend switching to canned food vs just dry food. Try a brand like Wellness or Innova. Probably a grain free variety would be best. Alot of commercial cat foods have too much carbs in them and I've found out that cats actually can not process carbs correctly and it can make them over weight. All of my other 8 cats are at ideal weight other then the one, so sometimes cats can just be fat regardless of trying to exercise them and feed them right.

check with your vet for food recommendations for your cat, every cat is different. Also, make sure to take your cat in for weight and measurement recording so you can see how well her diet works.

you can also invest in treat balls that you can feed her with. She would have to play with the ball to get the food out, so it forces her to become active.
