Helping Your Cat Lose Weight

Is your cat starting to resemble a furry little loaf of bread? While chubby cats can be adorable, carrying extra weight isn’t good for their health. Just like humans, overweight cats are at risk for a variety of health issues, including diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis. While it might seem like an uphill struggle to help your furry bestie shed some pounds, there are plenty of things to help you on the way.

What Stresses Your Cat?

We don't call cats the masters of emotional concealment for no reason. Our furry besties are used to hiding stress behind their composed exterior, which makes it so difficult for us to spot the signs of stress and understand their triggers. Let's explore what might stress your cat and how to help them feel less stressed!

How To: Give Your Cat Medication

Does the thought of giving your cat worming tablets or medication make you sweat? Read on to learn the tips and tricks to get your kitty to take their tablet without you getting battle scratches. 🐾  Giving medication in food 🍚 Once you’ve established your cat’s medication is ok to be given with food, plan for your cat to feel hungry. Take up any food that is left in a bowl during the day and give medication just before their main meal. 🍚 Before offering your cat their main meal, hide the tablet or liquid in a small amount of your cat’s usual food in their normal bowl. If they are usually fed dry food, it is best to offer medication with some wet food which will disguise it better! Other options include cat pâté, jelly from the wet food, a tiny amount of soft cheese or butter or a small piece of fish/meat. 🍚 Once your cat has finished the small portion of food with the medication, offer the rest of their meal.  🍚 If your kitty is super clever (or extra suspicious!) and eats around the tablet even in the small portion of food try crushing the medication and mixing it with their favorite treat or strong smelling fish. Some treat pastes that work well for giving medication include Webbox Lick-e-Lix, Arden Grange Tasty liver paste, Easypill Cat putty and Cosma jelly snacks. Giving medication into your cat’s mouth If the medication can't be given with food or your cat won't take it that way, the remaining option is to gently restrain your cat and pop it to the back of their throat. The Hug If your moggie is quite docile you can try restraining them without wrapping them up. Simply pop them onto a table or work-surface which is non-slippery, sit them upright, facing away from you, and gently hold at shoulder level with both hands (like hugging them from behind). This is so you can keep hold of their front legs if they try to swipe. The Purrito If your moggie is a wriggler and likes to use their back feet to kick out, then using a towel will be the safest method. Put a medium-sized towel onto a flat surface such as the floor or table and pop your cat onto the middle of it, facing away from you. Wrap each side of the towel over the top of your cat, leaving just their head out to make a cat burrito (purrito). Once your cat is gently restrained you are ready to give the tablet!
