Three is all I need

Jet the Tripawd Cat

Weight loss

March 10th, 2017 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized


I can attest that losing some weight has really helped Jet.  When I got him two years ago, he was “delightfully plump”.  My friend Jeri was feeding him this meow mix crap, which was basically junk food for cats.  Once I switched to better food, the weight came off.  He’s about 11.5 lbs now, down from 14.5 lbs.  His movement, balance, and energy are much improved.  The extra weight seemed to tire him out quicker, from all the hopping on one leg.  Although I think eating better food has as much to do with the improved energy as the weight loss.

    That’s great feedback! The fact that you can actually see the difference in Jet since he’s shed a couple of pounds is quite a motivation for any of us who may dealing with an overweight cat or dog. Good quality food AND good care seem to really be help Jet stay feet.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Jet is a GREAT testimonial on the importance of keeping a Tripawd slim. Kudos to you for being so on top of that situation!
