Shadow is enjoying his journey to lose weight so that he can be healthy, happy and active. He is such an amazing cat and I knew that this would be perfect for him because Shadow began this weight loss journey at 5.6 pounds overweight. Did you know that an extra 5 pounds for a small dog  is like a human carrying an extra 30 pounds! No wonder my best friend was slowing down on me and napping a lot… that is a lot of extra weight!

Here is Shadow at the start of the Hill’s Science Diet 10 Week Turnaround Challenge:

This was Shadow weighing 15.6 pounds. He is still the most amazing and gorgeous creature I have ever laid eyes on BUT for his breed he should be at the most 10 or 11 pounds. I really had no idea just how much extra weight my little guy was carrying around! He is amazing and I want to have as much time with him as humanly possible. There are many more pics to come so that you can share Shadows weight loss journey with me.  Make sure you have pics of your pet as well…. regardless of whether or not your pet needs to join this weight loss challenge…. because the memories are priceless! I would be lost without him! He makes my day, each and every day!

The first week of Shadows weight loss journey, he had to be transitioned into Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight. This is a week long process and is necessary so that your pets stomach does not get upset from the change in food. This is the chart for your reference….

HillsPerfectWeightTransitionChartShadow really took to this food. I was really scared because he is super picky but I did not need to worry at all. Hill’s Science Diet makes a delicious tasting food for all of your pets needs and Shadow loves it. He is totally transitioned and has been eating Hill’s Science Diet’s Perfect Weight Formula for about 10 days now.



  • I have created a feeding schedule for Shadow to help him with his weight loss journey and I need to stress that he is staying fuller longer and asking for food less. Shadow seriously has always been very vocal in letting me know he wants “more food” but that seems to be a thing of the past since he switched to Hill’s Science Diets Perfect Weight Formula. He is not running to the food bowl regularly because he is not as hungry. So simple and so awesome!


  • Shadow has been much more active. When Shadow was a little younger he used to sprint through the house when I was cleaning and he used to go crazy with his cat toys and the pointer laser…. but the last year or so he has simply not been as active. I am seeing the difference already! I was cleaning and vacuuming the house the other day and for the first time in a long time…. Shadow was sprinting and getting so excited! I pulled out his laser pointer and he went crazy! I loved it !


  • Shadow is looking amazing! His coat is super shiny as compared to about 2 or 3 weeks ago and I am amazed. Seriously…. my husband was away for work in Miami for a week and he came back yesterday and said Shadow looked a little thinner and his coat was super shiny. It is so true!


  • Shadow has lost some weight already! Seriously! I weighed him Friday and he was 14.7 pounds! He began this journey at 15.6 pounds and has already lost close to a pound! In only 10 days! That is huge for him and I know the results are not the same for all but with the extra playtime, the change in his diet due to this fabulous product and the change to his eating habits overall (Well….my education of proper feeding levels and not giving into the “treats” each and every time he asks me)… the difference is amazing! I still reward him with a few treats once a day and he still lost the weight thus far! He seems happier, shinier  & is definitely healthier too!

    Way to go Shadow! Cats can be such picky eaters; it’s nice to learn that this Science Diet formula not only works, but is also something even the most finicky eaters will like.

  • vickiecouturier

    ok my cat is heavier than yours ,,he weighs over 25 lbs,,did he meow when you cut his food,,mine even gets his bowl close to empty he goes nuts and wont shutup until you fill it

  • Rosie

    That is a great idea to have a posting journey about weight loss for a cat, or any pet that is overweight. I hope the enthusiasm helps you stick with it and your lil’ kitty becomes slim ‘n trim!

  • Jan Lee

    Shadow is a beautiful cat 🙂 I know it’s hard to get cats to lose weight and I’m glad he liked the food as cats can be very finicky about their foods 🙂 It’s great that you were able to take this challenge with your cat; you’ll be grateful you did when he lives longer 🙂

  • Sue E

    WOW! What a caring pet owner! Right now, I too am curbing my dog’s weight. He is 15 years old & could not exercise over this horrible winter. But my cat – for being a house cat is just the right size. She loves running up & down the stairs & the house!

  • Lisa Coomer Queen

    Shadow is such a pretty cat. I think you are doing a great job. This sounds like a good product.

  • Sandy Weinstein

    there are so many overweight cats it is so surprising. but it is harder to get cats to exercise than dogs…really hard to take your cat out on a leash as you can with dogs. my oldest dog has to lose some weight, she is not overweight, but is having some back issues so the vet wants her very skinny and she does not like that at all. she has started to be a lot which is not like her. congrats on shadow losing the weight and you being a caring parent to help her live a long healthy life

  • anita

    This is great! I have a dog that needs to shed a couple of pounds (vet’s orders) so I definitely will try this product!

  • Sonal

    Aww Shadow is so adorable. It is wonderful to read that you are doing everything you can to ensure your pet is healthy!!! I know it is so hard because sometimes you feed your pet out of love (especially with dogs and table food) without realizing you are actually harming their health. I hope Shadow lives a long and happy life with you!

  • Deborah W.

    I don’t have a cat but I do have an overweight dog. It’s hard to not give them treats and food when they are always begging for it. I try not to give her too much. I need to step up and walk her more.

  • Christy Peeples DuBois

    I am so happy for Shadow and the weight loss. I have friends and family that have had pets that were beyond huge and they saw nothing wrong with it. i no longer have a cat, which I’ve always had a cat, and I do miss my friend.

  • Heather Johnson

    I am happy for Shadow!! I have two cats who are slightly overweight themselves. If they even see a bit of blue (color of dish) they will drive us nuts like they are going to starve to death until we fill it again.

  • Judy maharrey

    This is an amazing feet! Shadow gets a kiss from me. He deserves it! I have to watch my cats too. They want something often, and I started it giving them treats, so I need to slow down on the treats.
