    Our Norweigian Forest Cat has gotten a little overweight (16lbs) even though the breed usually has a rotund body with small head and feet.

    Boots seems to have taken to the new diet and exercise program with GREAT! enthusiasm!
    My hubby yelled this morning "Get the camera! She's moving!!!"

    They go in the fenced yard for 1 hour each morning and Boots started right away on her program!!
    Please note the discipline in holding the same posture in each exercise!!

    WHAT A CAT!!!

    And before anyone thinks this baby is picked on, believe me she is well loved and is on a diet although the vet keeps telling me this is not out of the ordinary for her breed.

    My two 5 year old maine coon cats use that same program! However they do not go outside, they use the middle of the living room carpet and the back of any chair that is wide enough to do their daily fitness program! Thanks for sharing with pics!

    Quote:My cats (I have a slim siamese also) do not go out except for the supervised outing in the fenced yard each morning. Only bad things happen to cats outside. (JMO) and most of mine live to be in their 20's. Not that we don't have ferals outside.

    Quote:Thank you Luna. She is a beautiful girl but very one person. She is totally my cat and just tolerates hubby. She is always with me. Usually in my lap until my legs go numb!! LOL!

    Looks like Yoga to me! Holding those positions is harder than it looks....my cat has to nap for hours after a workout like that. He also works in a few laps around the yard with his trainer, Rooster Sue, followed by a healthy, high-protein meal of fresh, young rabbit. I'm telling you, we could all benefit from their strict exercise routine! [​IMG]
