My cats have been eating their premium Nulo food since August 15th and they seem to really like it. They're both looking extra sleek and shiny and I swear Xena looks a little leaner even though the scale reports that she's picked up a couple of ounces. Velvet apparently has lost a couple of ounces, so there's that.
I have doubts about the scale. Theoretically, it should be accurate since I'm weighing myself holding a cat, weighing myself alone, and subtracting to find the difference. However, I suspect that my cheapo digital scale from the drug store is not as consistent as one would like a measuring device to be. However, it's all I have so I'm going to start weighing the cats daily so see if that makes a difference.
See, doesn't she look a little more trim than she did at the start, or is that just my imagination?
My husband and I have already decided that we're going to continue with the Nulo food even after the program ends - and also start feeding it to the upstairs cats then. We're impressed with the quality of the ingredients. The price, while slightly higher than some of the pet food store brands, is not at all unreasonable. Plus, we like the idea of having our cat food delivered to the house. (Anyone else get a Pets.com flashback just then?)
In an effort to up the exercise portion of the program, I think I'll take a couple of the studio cats' toys downstairs and see if Xena can be convinced to play a bit more. I'd think a string on a stick and a laser would get her stirred up enough to burn some extra calories.
