Is your overweight cat refusing to stick to that New Year’s weight loss resolution? If so, Hill’s Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food may be the health conscious, reduced calorie answer to your prayers. Just ask Meadow what she thinks of Hill’s Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food after enjoying significant weight loss, increased energy, and her longtime vet’s stamp of approval. Thanks to Hill’s Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food, Meadow clawed her way out of chubby lazy diva-ville into the enviable upper echelons of fit and fabulous kittydom. If you have an overweight cat seeking similar results, read on!
Compared with financially comparable full fat alternatives, Hill’s Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food cat food offers reduced calories, less fat, and increased fiber to keep cats satisfied between meals while maintaining a great balance of recommended antioxidants for increased longevity. Unfortunately, Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food is available only in pet stores or online and is not your least expensive cat food on the market, ranging from $13 – $30 (depending on bag size) which is significantly pricier than many alternative options from brands such as Friskies and Purina (comparable bag sizes ranging from $5 – $15). These other brands are also more readily available at your local drug stores. However, with Science Diet containing fewer preservatives, using the FDA’s RDA chart for pets to determine ingredients and portion sizes, and being the Vet’s #1 recommended cat food brand overall, I decided that Meadow’s life and longevity was worth the additional expense and the up front effort to find a local pet store and online vendor to buy from on a regular basis. If it’s good enough for most veterinarians’ cats, it’s good enough for my sweet Meadow. Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food is not recommended for pregnant or nursing cats or for highly active cats that are not prone to excess weight gain. You may also consider Science Diet Adult Indoor cat food as an alternative longer term option for maintaining your cat’s weight once his or her goal weight has been reached. Science Diet Adult Indoor remains on the reduced calorie end but has slightly more calories, carbohydrates, and fat than Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food.
I’m not going to lie. Initially, being accustomed to Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Original Dry Cat Food, Meadow revolted at Hill’s Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food from a taste test perspective, and she sure is resourceful. After foraging the cabinets for the higher fat alternative that she was used to, she aptly discovered the remains of Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Original Dry Cat Food next to the reduced fat alternative Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food. She ravaged a hole through the Science Diet Adult Optimal Care full fat alternative on a voracious binge and vomited her gluttonous findings onto my bed. At that point, I began to wonder if I hadn’t made matters worse, turning a mildly overweight indoor cat into a wild bulimic animal in need of psychiatric help.
Yet much to my relief, within two weeks of discarding the remainder of the full fat alternative Science Diet Adult Optimal Care and keeping her on a strict daily regimen of reduced fat Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food, Meadow’s body temple spoke unequivocally in favor of Hill’s Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food food for her weight loss efforts. In addition to achieving her weight loss goals, she has become increasingly energized and thus more active with her feather duster and cat nip ball. She is clearly a healthier, happier cat all around, and best yet her vet has given her the stamp of approval.
Most folks would agree that a picture (or two) is worth 1000 words and numbers don’t lie. The proof is in the pudding or in this case, the reduced fat, reduced calorie pebbles of Hill’s Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food. A 30% body fat weight loss reduction was no small feat for this lazy indoor diva. I implore you to consider investing in Hill’s Science Diet Adult Light Cat Food for your cat’s weight loss needs and offer your overweight cat a shot at living a long and healthy life.
