Play a game with your cat; it could save his life!
Too many treats and too much sleep everyday can lead to Feline Diabetes!
People and cats are turning into couch potatoes together. A study out of the UK finds that cats are getting too fat and lazy because their humans feed them too much and don’t let them get enough exercise. Then they get sick and you have to take them to the vet regularly, buy medications and new food… it all adds up.
But after a long day working…
I know I am guilty of it… I just want to sit on the couch and cuddle with Neo after work…. But the thing is, Neo has been sleeping and eating all day, the last thing he needs is more sitting on the sofa …..and the treats! I give him about 5 or 6 treats, maybe 2 or 3 times a night – that is way too many calories for a little cat body.
The study recommends that you stop feeding your cats treats and instead pick up a toy and play with them – give them some exercise. Really, when you think about it, it can be really boring as a cat… especially a house cat that lives with humans that work long hours. Maybe a game or two is exactly what your cat is craving, not those kitty treats.
I’m going to play with him right now….. but the only problem is I have to shake the bag of treats to get him to come to me….. hmmmm.
