New Year’s Resolutions for Really Fat Cats
If you’re looking for the perfect way to start the new year off right, why not consider giving your really fat cat a few resolutions? It may sound silly, but making sure they are living a happy and healthy life is important! So what kind of resolutions should your really fat cat have? Here are some ideas to get you started.
Cutting Back On Treats – Sure, treats can be great for rewarding good behavior, but if your cat is already overweight then they don’t need any more calories! Try cutting back on treats and replacing them with interactive toys like laser pointers or food puzzles. This will keep your kitty active and help them shed a few extra pounds.
More Exercise – A sedentary lifestyle is bad for both humans and cats alike. Make sure your kitty gets plenty of exercise by playing with them every day or setting up an awesome kitty playground in the house. This will help keep their weight down and give them something fun to do!
Healthy Diet – A balanced diet is key to maintaining a healthy weight. Speak with your veterinarian about what type of food would be best for your cat’s dietary needs and stick to it! You can also add in some fresh fruits and vegetables as occasional treats that won’t harm their waistline.
Conclusion: With these simple resolutions, you can help keep your really fat cat healthy this year! Just remember that any changes should be done gradually so that it won’t shock their system or cause stress. With some dedication and consistency, you can help make sure 2023 is the healthiest year yet for your beloved feline friend! Happy New Year from all of us at AAPP!
