Noah

Drawing by BZTAT

Noah’s is a face that is hard to resist, isn’t it? Humans look at this drawing that BZTAT made of him, and they just wanna go “coochy, coochy, goo!!!”

When ya see the rest of him, though, ya go, “Wow! That’s a BIG cat!”

Even after 7 weeks with Nulo, he is a big cat. His weight has remained pretty much the same, I am afraid to report. It kinda fluctuates from 19 t0 21lbs., depending on when he is weighed and when his last feeding was.

To be honest, we are not hugely surprised. He has been on prescription diets before and not lost weight. And this go around has been interrupted by BZTAT’s travels away from us on two occasions.

BZTAT has kept to the portion control while she has been in town. She is considering cutting it back a bit, but we hafta be careful about that.

Noah starts eating things he shouldn’t when he doesn’t get as much food as he wants. He likes to chew on plastic bags, and one time had to have one surgically removed from his tummy. The recovery from that surgery actually is what kicked off his weight problems.

Nulo isn’t just about losing weight though. It is about eating healthy. It is about getting exercise. It is about making sure that pets get nutrients and important food schtuffs and not all the junk that gets put into pet foods these days.

All of us are really likin’ the food now, and BZTAT is likin’ that our furs are much softer than before. She is likin’ the fact that our food is fresh and comes to us soon after it is made. It doesn’t sit on warehouse and store shelves for months before it gets to us. She is also likin’ the fact that she knows the people at Nulo really care about us and other pets.

Our customer service rep Julie made a special call last week to check on Noah to make sure he was doin’ better with his “output” issues. (He is all better now. Thanks Julie fur carin’ about how he was feelin’!)

Pet obesity is a serious issue, as it can lead to so many different health concerns for animals. We are glad to have a partner like Nulo to help us help Noah with his weight, because we know that they really care and understand the problems associated with pet obesity. We will keep workin’ with them to help Noah with this adventure.

Check out this great article on MSNBC featuring comments by Nulo founder Michael Landa about why he started the company.

  1. It is too bad that Noah hasn’t really lost any weight, but hopefully the weight he has is at least healthier because of having better, healthier foods now. Maybe he just needs to get a bit more exercise in – which is really tough with cats of course!

  2. We are thinkin’ the exercise thing might be part of the issue. We’ll keep at it and see how it all works out.

  3. […] Noah continues to fluxuate, which is normal for anyone (feline, canine or human) when on a weight reduction program. It may take Noah longer than some of his counterparts to lose the weight he needs but he is on the right track. His mom, BZTAT, feels better knowing her pack of rascally cats are all eating better overall. […]
