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.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. 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.
Overweight and Confused with Food
My name is Cocoa and I am overweight.
Now with that out of the way, my meowmy needs help understanding what food would be best to help me lose some weight.
In December she started feeding us Eagle Holistic Select Anchovy, Sardine & Salmon Meal Formula. This food is supposed to help with my brother Bandits allergies, as well as weight management for me. I don\'t think it\'s working, as I still eat and eat.
Meowmy thought since it had more protein it would fill me up more, but she noticed it also has lots more fat in it than our old food.
She also gives us 1 can of Eagle Holistic Canned Salmon & Shrimp Formula bewteen the three of us a day.
Can someone help her understand if the fat from a \"high quality\" food like Eagle is a better fat than from our old grocery store food, or is fat, fat?
She has been doing research on different cat foods till she\'s dizzy, but still is confused on the fat content part.
Meowmy and I would really appreciate any advice anyone can offer if they have gone through a time when they needed to lose weight. I used to be able to run and jump, but I can\'t do that anymore, I am even having a hard time just walking with all this weight.
Purrs to everyone,
