Q. My female cat is getting fat she is about 5years old and only small. Is this normal and what can I do to keep her slim. She doesn't eat all food given
A. If she eats dry food, transition her slowly to a good quality canned food. Food that comes from the can looking like a hockey puck. No minced or diced food and no sauces or gravies. All those tend to have high carb content. Cats have no dietary requirement for carbs. If she is leaving food, decrease the amount fed until she is finishing the meals.
