No Soft Dinner for Sister


I've only ever purchased soft cat food for one cat--and only had one cat diagnosed as being slightly too plump. Same cat.

No more soft dinner for Sister.

Charlie Brown is 18 and a half, he does now eat soft food as he is down to one tooth, but it's prescribed soft food which we supplement with (minced) chicken and tuna. He is a seriously slinky cat.

Guess she must be really squishy now. 😉 Dolly can eat anything and still keep her girlish figure; Henry is allowed very little in comparison, yet is too plump.

It's not good for her teeth either. She doesn't want to be plump with bad teeth now does she :)

What is soft cat food?

Poor sissy. I hope it isn't to hard on her or you.

Really? I am surprised at that recommendation. Everything I have read advocates wet food for cats because of the high water content which cats vitally need and is better for kidney function. My senior cat who I inherited from my mom was terribly overweight - I read up on it and attributed it to the much higher carbohydrate content of dry cat chow. I put him on a Fancy Feast (only Classic varieties) and he slimmed down with a much healthier coat of fur.

Sister, take heart, girl! My sister's cat (Jasper) weighs 18 lbs. (For hilarious scale, her dog, a chihuahua, weighs 5 lbs.) Just know you will never, ever, be as tubby as Jasper.

I'm on a spring diet, too. Maybe I should put a sign on my fridge: NO CHOCOLATE FOR MAMA. It might work....

Donalynn, soft cat food is the malodorous moist stuff that comes in a can. We are only using dry cat food now--"crunchies", as they are called at our house.

Apparently some cats are great at maintaining an appropriate weight, and others, not so much . . . .

Haha! Soft foods (cakes, bread, etc) puts weight on us humans too, Sister.

Veterinarian chiming in here to second what Running says above, for the consideration of all your cat-loving readers. In general, wet food is healthier for cats due to the higher water content and the lower carb content. But if you find you can control Sister's calories better with dry food, that is a worthy effort.
