Results are In for Supermodel Cat on #HillsPet Weight Loss!

Johnny Walker BEFORE the #HillsPet weight loss for cats

Johnny Walker is loving life! Yes this black spokescat has shed some portly weight on the #HillsPet Weight Loss program. While not a svelte model, we are ecstatic that this supermodel cat is more energetic, playful, and gregarious. Time to renew his contract! Oh gosh, we anticipate (excuse the pun)  "heavy" negotiations.

Johnny Walker began this journey three months ago on the Hill's® Prescription Diet® Feline Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution and has lost an entire pound. That's equivalent to 10 pounds for a human--tremendous results!  Ideally we were aiming for two pounds per the vet's recommendation, but we discovered in the middle of the night that JW was gaining access to other dry cat food in the pantry thanks to his partner-in-crime, tabby sibling Curious Jorge, who knows how to open doors and all five siblings were nosediving into the other bags of cat food.

Johnny Walker loves the food!  We make feeding time part of his exercise. How you ask?  Johnny Walker is fed in a "special cardonned area" (supermodel cats must be treated like VIPs at all times even though it's only the bathroom counters) elevated and away from the common cats. Calling his name signals meal time that he automatically awakens from a slumber nap and races off to one designated feeding area.  I purposefully turn away in the direction of the second bathroom (I mean feeding place), and he jumps down, and races like the dickens to the other counter top. I look at him straight in the eye and say "Good warmup! Now let's see if you can run a third round?".  We are up to six laps! That in itself is proof of his increased stamina.

Here's a video of lap seven. He's hesitating and not running in beeline to countertop but once he hears the cup of food, JW jumps for joy!

As evidenced in the video below, Johnny Walker's three-tiered Swarovksi diamond and velvet collar is noticeably loose!  Oh boy--time to reorder another custom-sized collar!  (Supermodels are high maintenance--including cats).  But pet health is most important above all and cat weight loss reduces risks for a host of health problems associated with cat obesity.

For this reason, we encourage all pet owners to check regularly their pet's weight. An overweight pet does not mean your purring feline is healthy. It means the complete opposite. Check with your vet what is the appropriate weight according to its breed, age and size. And start a healthy diet for your pet as well! We recommend trying  Hill's® Prescription Diet® Feline Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution for a good start on your pet healthy eating.
