How do you put a cat on a diet? Murray is obese. He’s awesome, lovable and hilarious, but he’s obese. And I want him to live a long, long time. So, it’s probably wise that he lose some weight.
I’ve tried to put him on a diet and—I’m not kidding—the moment he decides that he’s hungry, he starts looking for anything and everything he can put in his mouth. Paper, twigs, jelly beans, lint, leaves, paper towels, toys, crumbs—everything.
The hardest thing about it is, I have three cats, one of which is old and often won’t eat when the boys are around. I usually have to leave a little bit more around for her. Naturally, if I leave food around all the time, Murray consumes every last bit of it.
So, how do you put a cat with an eating disorder on a diet? Because he’s getting fatter by the minute.
Yes, I did just tell him that I love him. Crazy cat lady indeed.
