Is your cat overweight?

A recent study reported Minnesota ranks highest in obese pets, and indoor cats are especially at risk of being overweight. Behavior and Training Lead, Katie Heathcote, provides some tips on how to help your cat shed those extra pounds.

Cats have different feeding patterns, so two big meals a day aren't ideal. Try spreading out your kitty's meals into smaller portions throughout the day. 

Another way to keep your cat active is to use feeder toys that make them work to get their kibble. DIY a toy at home with some scissors and a toilet paper roll.
