Now one would think the svelte, racy, athletic Cornish Rex cat named Coco would never have to worry about her weight ...
True, she never has to worry if a dress will make her butt look big ... And she is fit and gets the 'Night Time Circus' crazies just like a kitty half her age.
But when I stopped feeding dry food to my cats (about 6 months ago), everyone including Coco shaped up! She has lost half an inch around her chest and her waist and has gone from 6.5# to 6#, which is her 'show weight' when she was a young lady cat!
It wasn't so evident to me, as I see them every day, but when I updated everyone's measurements last week (in case I go clothes shopping for the boys sometime soon) ... I was surprised to see what the tape measure told me, most notably on my forever-on-a-diet Sphynx, Disco NoFurNo, who hasn't lost weight but has lost inches!
But you can read about that on our blog that features him, Curlz and Swirlz, Life with Cornish Rex Cats and a Sphynx named Disco NoFurNo.
I don't think they would mind me sharing this information, if it helped another cat get on the bandwagon of feeding a species appropriate diet! My cats are current fed a combination of Weruva Paw Lickin' Chicken canned food, Primal and Stella & Chewy's Freeze Dried raw diets and most recently Darwin's Raw Cat Food.
Now I just have to hop on the bandwagon and eat better myself! I'm not going to share my weight and inches info here ... I think Coco would understand!
But we all can Hop on the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop today... that's exercise, right?!
