Fat Cat Loses Serious Weight and Regains Good Health

at cat

Lunchbox is probably an appropriate moniker for a cat that weighed a massive 28-pounds when she was taken to the Kitty Adventure Rescue League and Sanctuary a year and-a-half ago. She was so fat that she could barely walk, and her health was failing quickly. No one is quite sure how the darling cat came to be so big and so unhealthy, but the sanctuary owners knew they had to do something to help this cat lose weight; she was so big that her stomach dragged the ground and caused her fur to mat and become filthy. The shelter decided to make the cat exercise using a very simple routine that required she get up and move around.

It took 7 months, but the sweet feline ended up losing 14 pounds. She couldn’t diet since the cats at the shelter all have access to the food that is provided through donations and they couldn’t keep her away from it, but exercise has proved to be her best friend. She is 14-years-old and still a bit on the chubby side for where she needs to be, but she’s working on her fitness and she’s getting much better. She’s also very happy at the sanctuary. It’s a sort of retirement village for older cats who are unable to find a new home since many people are unwilling to take older cats with medical needs and special attention requirements. She’s still a work in progress, but she’s doing so much better than she has been in the past.
