Okay all you cat lovers...
I've got this adorable but obese kitty. I am feeding her one of those low-fat dry kibble cat food products that vets recommend. I am feeding her according to the directions, not that much really. My cat's a cute little butterball, but I'm concerned for her health. She's a solid 12-13 pounds on a smaller frame. Also, my hubby & I are tired of throwing our backs out when we pick her up! LOL! Someone recently told me that my cat's fat because I'm feeding her kibble. She told me I should feed my cats raw meat, just like in nature, all the time (not that canned cr@p you buy at the store, but real meat).
Anyone heard of feeding an all raw meat diet to the kitties? Does it make a difference in their health? I will ask the vet next time we stop by, but was just curious if anyone else here has tried it.
PS- WARNING to all you kitty haters (and I know who you are!!) ya'll better not post on this one...don't make me sic my cat posse on ya

I get my kitty some Eukanuba food for "mature" cats. She is 12 and is very sedentary. She also gets hairball treatments cause she is longhaired and gets outrageous and scary hairballs w/o it. This oily supplement seems to keep her coat shiny. On the regimen we use, she stays slim and trim, produces VERY little waste, and looks WONDERFUL...like a kitty no older than 4 or 5. That and getting a kitty to PLAY like suggested will help keep weight down. WATCH what kitty eats...just like with people, kitties are what they eat. Really.
