My Fat Cat Wants to Get in Shape!
My cat, Sebastian, is fat. I don't mean to sound insulting, but it is just a fact. He is very much like me in that he loves to eat! The problem is that Sebbie's favorite sport is sleeping, and mine is sitting on my comfy chair working on my laptop (like I am doing right now)!
Sebastian and I decided we needed to do something about the squishy parts of ourselves together. After all, it's easier to lose weight with teamwork. Well, I've been trying to use my treadmill a few times a week, but my fat cat will have nothing to do with it. (We tried to teach him to walk on it, but he let us know that it was NOT something he wanted to do!)
We've decided to try to find a way for him to exercise that is more cat appropriate. Sebastian has picked some of his favorite choices to exercise, but we can't decide which one is best for him. Perhaps you can help us decide and share your thoughts below. :-D
Exercise is important for cats, too!
We want Sebbie to get moving to help him lose his extra weight so he will be healthier and happier. There are several things we will do to try to help him including using toys to encourage him to bat, pounce, and chase and creating fun play areas for him using cardboard boxes, chairs, crates, and other safe objects!
