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!

Laser Toys - Not The Best Toys For Cats

Just when you thought you found the perfect way to play with your cat and still sit on the couch...

 Here's a tip from Pam Johnson-Bennett, CABC, Cat Behavior Associates (

"I always advise my clients not to use laser toys for playtime with their pets. Cats are tactile creatures, and when they pounce on t! heir "prey" they want to actually feel something underneath their paws. Putting a paw over a laser light is an exercise in frustration.

People often move the lights too frantically, causing the cat to stop playing in a natural feline way and begin bouncing off the walls in an attempt to get the target. This isn't how cats play. And in some cases, chasing laser lights can cause cats to develop a fixation with any flickering light -- they may end up displaying OCD-type behavior.

Although manufacturers claim the laser toys are safe, always avoid shining the light directly into your cat's eyes."
