We have two neutered 5.5 year old cats.
Purchased from a cat association that helps homeless cats.
One cat was found in a forest and the other cat picked up the association on the street.
Both met with a support family and liked each other a lot.
We bought both when they were kittens when we got them home safely.
We go to the vet every year and they eat Royal canin neutered Young female 55g per day.
The cats are very happy with food and they always growl a lot and want more.
They gain weight easily.
So they get more dry food, they just want more and in the end they have gained weight.
They meow during the day, they meow at night.
There is always someone at home with the cats, which means that there is always someone you can go and yell at.
Please help us, we feel sorry for the cats and it’s hard to see them.
If the cats are hungry all the time, you can try giving a food that contains fewer calories / gram.
Diet foods such as Royal Canin Satiety or Hill’s Metabolic can work.
If the cats like wet food, you can give it that instead because it contains more water and the cats can eat a larger volume of it without gaining as much weight.
It is very good to feed hungry cats in activation food bowls and to hide the food in toys or toilet rolls.
It then takes longer for the cats to eat the same amount of food.
Do not give in when the cats beg because they quickly learn this and then they beg even more.
Give food 3-4 times / day at fixed times and then let the cats work for the food!
There are lots of activation food bowls / toys on the market but you can also make your own.
For example, take an empty plastic bottle and make small holes in it.
Put food in the bottle – screw on the cap and let the cats roll on the bottle to get the food out.
Good luck, I hope my tips were of much help!
