Weight Loss For Cats:

Weight loss in cats is EASY if you know three things.

1) Dry food with nothing on it or mixed in it.

2) Cats MUST eat every day. But they don't have to eat much.

3) Cats won't lose weight if they share a bowl because they'll get more or less than they should.

So. Choose a "less-active" or "low fat" cat diet.
A dry cat food.

You'll be feeding in teaspoons or tablespoons.
You can put down the tablespoons all at one time for grazing weight loss.
It's even better to put the tablespoons down twice a day and supervise it. They'll come running once they figure out that there's not food out "all the time"

Whichever way is easiest to avoid 'communal' food sharing.

This is how much you should feed your cat per day, divide it in half for 'twice a day feeds'.

If you want your cat to weight 9 pounds - give 18 teaspoons (level) ONCE per day.

Here's an EXPLAINER with a Chart of How Much to Feed a Heavy Cat

Omega Paw Elite Self Cleaning Litter Box Large (Not electric - Not $499 either. LOL)

There's another one of these that sometimes opens when you roll it. Oops! But this one is upgraded with thicker material and better clips. You just roll it and it cleans itself into a scoop inside. PATENTED SELF CLEANING SIFTING GRATE Separates waste from clean litter. It uses clumping litter. It's super-highly reviewed on Amazon. (Buy One Here for under $80)

Have you seen these?

These can track your pet (or kid) in real time and unless they get the thing off their collar, you can find your pet. Highest rating on Amazon - reliable and again, unlimited range. (It uses the internet)

Put one on your pet soon, and cut your chances of losing your pet.

Long range, waterproof Pet Location GPS Tracker.

Something else I found for my dog "Ajax" that's cool:

Sporn Dog Halter STOPS "pulling and tugging" NOW. (Link)

This is what I use now, with my dog Ajax. I used to use the Gentle Leader, but I didn't like including his face in the thing. Now, this just goes around his chest and he DOES NOT PULL ANY MORE. It's great! Amazon.com has it.

You can buy a fat bundle of 'wet wipes' with Cetaphil and I'd recommend it. They're great for cleaning healing wounds, dirty ears, cleansing around some eyes, under-tails, surgery sites, sores.
