My cats like the Iams too. When I want to give them a treat I give them a few pieces of another brand of weight control kibble. If it isn't the same old thing it becomes a treat (and you save a little money). If your cat gets out of the yard it may be visiting the neighbors for a quick snack. You might want to check with them and let them know if the cat seems hungry it is because she is on a diet so they would be helping her by not feeding it

Look for a high protein low carb diet with fat no more than 16% and fiber no more than 6% Some commercial and prescription weight loss diets are actually very high in carbs and fat! Carbs are stored in the body as fat so look for a high quality protein cat food. The more protein in the food the less carbs there can be. Also keep track of your portions.
