She keeps saying it's just her "winter weight" and that she'll work it off by hunting house centipedes, but the proof is in the pudding, folks. Lola is only getting bigger.
She now officially weighs more than twice what Betelgeuse and Lulu weigh when put together. We're proud of you, Lola, but it's time for you to go on a diet.
Our local pet store recommended feeding her the high-protein, low-carb Abady Complete Beef-Based FAT CAT Formula according to the specifications on the can. It's a good thing Lola can't read English, or she might take offense to the formula name. Can you imagine a human diet food being called "FAT PEOPLE FOOD" with a subtitle that reads "helps bring about the best condition possible for ADULT FAT PEOPLE"? I'm sure it would be flying off the shelves.
A 13.2 oz. can costs approximately $2.60 when purchased individually. It's a little pricey, and Lola still constantly cries for her dry food. If we don't keep an eye on her, she'll sneak dog food, too. (The pups just lay down and watch her do it, occasionally letting out a tiny whine.)
If anyone has any recommendations outside of the Abady Fat Cat formula for a good weight management wet or dry cat food, please leave a comment. I'm all ears. And Lola is all blob. Well, mostly blob. She still has a tiny head.
