I will admit that since this trial and her weight loss depended on her eating her new food, I was a bit concerned when I first heard the name. Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution doesn't exactly scream "Kitty Crack". After introducing Vega to her new food I realized I had not had any reason to worry, she loved it! Dry food, treats, and most surprisingly of all the canned food (she's always hated wet food), she devoured it all. Her cat brother Cloud even tried stealing her meals from her, so the good folks at Hills must be doing something right!

the wet food! As you can see from the bottom right image her
brother Cloud also enjoys the food.
When Vega started on her food she was a 14.5 lb overweight cat. After having been on Metabolics for 2 months she dropped down to 13 lbs! When I discovered she'd gone down in weight I was extremely happy, especially since we had tried to get her to slim down in the past. I was also surprised since all we'd had to do was feed her Metabolics, it was the simplest weight loss plan we'd ever followed.
Even though Vega wasn't required to exercise I did notice that as time went on my once overweight cat became more active.
I had a bunch of cat toys that Vega used to play with back when she was at a normal weight, her favorite being the bird wand. But as she got larger she started to ignore her toys, putting no effort into interacting with anything that wasn't a pillow or her food bowl. After she lost 1.5 lbs things started to change. One day, around the 2 month mark, my mom and I were having a conversation in my room when Vega found her old bird wand and started playing with it on her own! We were stunned as we watched my cat pounce and hop all over the place. Ever since that moment play time with Vega has become a common occurrence in our house, and she loves us for it.
|We still can't believe that Vega was able to lose 3 lbs by just|
eating her Hill's Metabolic cat food. It's the easiest diet we ever
tried for one of our pets.
As her time on the Metabolics diet continued so did Vega's weight loss, until she hit her goal weight on June 21st. I was extremely happy to see that my kitty had knocked out the 3 lbs she needed to lose, bringing her to weigh 11.5 lbs.
Since Vega was no longer an overweight cat we boosted up her kibble portion. Unfortunately this did make her go back up to 12 lbs so we will be cutting her back down a bit until we find the right balance to keep her weight steady.
|Vega is able to enjoy her life more|
now that she's lost all that excess
weight. We are excited to help her
keep it off by continuing feeding
Hill's Metabolics cat food.
We are certain that once we find the correct amount of food we have to feed her that she'll keep the weight off. The reason we are so confident about this is that we never thought it'd be possible for our cat to lose her excess pounds and regain her pep in the first place. This trial has left me and my family (and Vega!) beyond pleased and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cat weight loss plan.
