How Do You Help A Fat Cat Lose Weight?

A former 41-pound cat dubbed Skinny has lost more than half of his weight to become the darling of a Dallas veterinary clinic.

Fat cat no more: Hefty feline named Skinny slims down from 41 to 19 pounds

  • Dr. Brittney Barton said the orange tabby she adopted in 2013 has slimmed down to 19 pounds with exercise and a special diet
  • Skinny was found abandoned near Dallas in 2012 and ended up at a shelter

Barton said Skinny is living proof that while he’s supposed to be a large cat,

‘he’s not supposed to be an obese cat.’

‘I’m happy where he is at this point in time.

‘The rest is just excess skin.’
