Scylla Sunday

Many of you having probably been reading about Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution. Rocco's Mom over at To Dog with Love posted about  A Portly Pup Loses Lbs and Gains a New Lease on Life #HillsPet and  Sugar the Golden Retriever posted Is Your Pet Overweight? #HillsPet Metabolic Diet To The Rescue, as an overweight cat I was inspired by these stories. And I am thrilled to have won the chance to try this diet.

I haven't gotten the food yet so I can't tell you anything about it. I am hoping it will be arriving in the mail soon so I can get started losing the pounds because boy do I have a lot of pounds to lose. But this is what I have done so far. I visited the vet so they could weigh me, then  measure me and determine my ideal weight. The bad news is I weigh 16.6# my ideal weight is 7.2# . When I get the food I will be feed 1/4 cup of dry food and 1/2 can of canned cat food a day. I don't actually eat that much normally so we will have to see. I am also allowed 2 treats a day.   TREATS!!! I get treats on this diet it can't be all bad. We checked and sadly they don't make y/d treats, so poor Socks still can't have treats.

Now some of you are probably wondering how I got so obese when I don't eat much. As a young kitten I was very active and fit. Then I got spayed and I got a sagging abdomen. It wasn't very big at first just a little pouch but it made it harder for me to keep up with Charybdis. She got spayed the same time I did but her abdomen didn't sag (so unfair). Then Charybdis died and for awhile I didn't have anyone to play with so I was even less active and the pouch sagged even MORE.  When Arty Mouse came to live with us and I had a playmate again, I was pretty active so I managed to just stay kinda fat, but then when she disappeared I got OBESE.

Mommy described me like this Scylla's head was the size of a golf ball and her body was the size of a basketball she looked like a cartoon kitty. Not good at all so she put me on Iams® ProActive Health™ Adult Weight Control and it kinda worked. I lost enough weight that I didn't look like a cartoon cat, but I seemed to hit a plateau and wasn't losing weight anymore so we were thrilled when were heard about Feline Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution. Once we get the food I'll let you know how I like it and we will keep you posted on my weight loss.

  13. Very very excited to hear they make a food special for lady cats. Keeping paws and fingers crossed that it arrives and works.

  14. (Blushing) Sammy you are so sweet and everyone y'all are so nice to compliment me. It's good to know how loved I am no matter how I look, but I really do want to lose weight so I can groom properly and play more, and of course I want to be as healthy as I can be so I can spend many years with all of you.

    Brian, you are just the sweetest boyfriend a girl could ask for. I will always love you too. ~Scylla
