Giving the cat a run for his money (no pun intended)

Having weighed our three cats in the new year and found to our amazement that the one who constantly eats has lost 0.3kg a challenge formed. My wife thought this wasnt much weight loss but after taking account of his weight we determined this was around 5% of his body weight.

The equivalent of 7 pounds for me, so the challenge was born. Can I lose 5% of my body weight by the end of February. So consistent running, cutting snacking, and healthy lunches here we come.

Bring it on.

  • Sounds like a good challenge, go you!

    Maybe the cat needs a checkup?

  • Cat will get his annual check soon. He is a big boy, his weight loss is welcome news. We have reduced his food but he didn't seem to be losing weight.

  • That sounds good too :) Our older cat has been getting a bit chubby, we're working on her - it's tricky isn't it!

  • We think our boy is visiting all the neighbours and getting his meals upgraded!

  • Gotta love cats 😄

  • Yup. At least one of ours does the same. Oddly, the one we know goes elsewhere is the smaller; Fatso must surely have another source of food, but not the immediate neighbours.

    And yes, I'm aware of the hypocrisy of me calling him names! ;)
