Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
I've been trying to help my cat Rory loose weight for over a year. At her last weigh in she was 15 pounds, and I think she has gained since then.
My vet recommended meal feeding her with soft food that is high in protein and low in grains. But Rory doesn't like soft food. I tried for about 2 months and she wouldn't eat it. So my vet told me exactly how much dry food to give her based on everything in her food to make her loose weight. Rory doesn't even eat as much as the vet said she could, even though its provided for her but she is still gaining weight.
Her food is Natural Balance Reduced Calorie Formula Ultra Premium Cat Food.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a food form of dry cat food that helps to loose weight? My vet will put her on some incredibly expensive kind of food soon if she does't start loosing weight soon, I'd prefer to avoid that if I can. Don't get me wrong, I'd pay for the special food but if I can avoid spending an arm and a leg every few weeks....
