Help your dog or cat slim down on holiday!

I noticed a story on the Sussex Living website about a pair of overweight cats…

NOT-SO-SLINKY SIAMESE CATS NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION TO LOSE WEIGHT

Podgy Cleo and Jasper were handed into Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre in Chelwood Gate, Sussex, in December after their previous owner could no longer care for them.

While in good condition, the portly pair are far from the typical sleek and slinky image of Siamese cats, with Jasper tipping the scales at 7.2kg and Cleo weighing in at 5.2kg. As a male, Jasper’s ideal weight should be between 6 – 6.5kg and females such as Cleo should weigh between 4 – 4.5kg.

Obesity in pets is a growing problem, according to the RSPCA.

TV vet Joe Inglis, who has teamed up with the charity to launch a Pets Get Slim website and roadshow, said that “action needs to be taken” over pet obesity.

“Whether your pet is obese or slightly overweight – it matters. A weight problem can affect a pet’s quality of life and lead to straining of the joints, causing arthritis, as well as internal illnesses like diabetes, liver disease and heart disease,” he said.
