Is Your Cat Getting More and More Chubby?

This is Raja, our overweight cat!

Raja started out a reasonably svelte 12 lbs when we got her from a local shelter at age 7. Then, barely 2 years later, she was up to a hefty 15 lbs!

Diet cat foods were no help. Then, I happened to read a book: "Your Cat, Simple New Secrets To A Longer, Stronger Life" and it changed everything.

We invite you to follow our quest for a healthy weight-loss plan for this funny, personable and very talkative cat.

Hopefully, together we can help all our cats live healthier and thinner lives!

Our Cat Stopped Peeing Outside Her Litter Box! So Far So Good . . .

Well, we tried a few things and I think we've solved the "peeing outside the box" issue with Rajah.

Here's what we did:

  1. We got a bigger litter box. Rajah is a very l-o-n-g cat and so she barely fits in a standard litter box. Also, the smaller boxes give her less clean space to do her business if there's something already in it.
  2. We clean her box every day. We used to wait a couple of days because we didn't want to "spoil" her. Meaning we were a bit lazy and didn't want her to get used to a daily clean litter box. Now that we clean it every morning, she has stopped going outside the box.
  3. We removed all the carpet in the area around her box. Not sure if this is important or not. I read online that cats like to go on soft carpeted areas if they don't have litter, so we removed the basement carpet. Fortunately, we were going to do this anyway because we had some water seepage problems and the carpet got soaked.

So far she's been a good girl, so apparently this all worked.

But, I really think it's because we clean her box out daily and she has enough room in the larger box to get comfortable.

Hope this helps anyone else out there with a similar problem.
