I have a fourteen year old Mainecoon cat who has a horrible weight issue. Along with her I have 3 kittens. We tried the weight control foods but when we did that the kittens started to eat it as well and began losing weight that they really didn't need to lose. The mainecoon didn't lose any weight. She currently weighs in at a whopping 22 pounds. We have had her since she was only an 8 week old kitten and we are very concerned about her weight taking her from us. As fellow cat lovers I'm sure you all understand what this old girl means to me and my family. We have already lost her younger sister do to a weight problem. Since they were mainecoons we sort have overlooked the weight problem for many years. Now Cleo is so big that she doesn't leave my bed room. My mother and I have been taking her across the house and making her walk her way back to my bed room. But since she was a kitten she has been very shy and is scared of many many things. I'm worried that making her run around the house is going to scare her to death. Does anyone know any ways to help her lose weight more quickly? I'm getting discouraged and am coming to the realization that I am most likely going to lose my girl because I wasn't more health concious for her. Please help us help our old baby.
