I am so excited to share the results of Shadow’s 10 week Turnaround Challenge with Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight Cat Food! If you follow me regularly, then I am sure you have seen my posts about Shadow’s weight loss journey over the last 10 weeks. His journey started with my first post in March and it has been a wonderful thing to behold and I am so very happy for him! He started his journey at 15.6 pounds and I had no idea at the beginning that he was 4 and a half pounds overweight. That is a lot of extra weight for a cat. That is close to a human being 30 pounds overweight in comparison!

Shadow’s Before and After Pictures (Not so easy with a cat 🙂 )

Well….. Shadow has shed the pounds weighing in this week at 12.1 pounds! He has been so much more active and it has been such a blast! My daughter has been playing with him regularly with his laser toy and feather cat toys. He is so fun to watch and his energy levels show what a difference those extra pounds lost have made. He is like a younger version of himself… playing and sprinting throughout the house! I love it! I know Shadow will live a long and healthy life and this is a food I will continue to feed him for years to come. He loves the food and I love the results!


The 10 Week Turnaround was an amazingly easy transition for Shadow. I was concerned about whether he would like the food at first because he is a picky eater. That was time wasted worrying for nothing because Shadow took to Hill’s Science Diets Perfect Weight Cat Food immediately. Hill’s gave me easy to follow instructions on how to transition Shadow at the start of the 10 week Turnaround Challenge to the new food by mixing the first week. The food has prebiotic fibers that made digestion gentle and easy Shadow’s Digestive system.

I tracked his feedings and activity weekly and measured his food daily as well. He only needs 2/3 cup of food a day and he never cries and begs for more. Because of the high quality ingredients and balanced nutrition Shadow is fuller longer and spending time playing rather than eating and napping constantly.

Here is a video that my daughter made of him playing with his laser light! His favorite past time for sure!

 Did you notice the difference in Shadow’s coat in the before and after pictures? His coat is so shiny and healthy now and his eyes are so perky and bright! He is a changed cat! For the better!

Shadow’s healthy weight transition would not be possible without Hill’s Science Diet and their fabulous Perfect Weight Cat Food. PLUS they have so many helpful tools for your pets journey on their website that have been so very beneficial to Shadow! We are fans for life and will continue to track and monitor Shadow’s weight to ensure he is his most active and healthy self! Weight Loss is a tough journey and a serious one for humans and pets alike!

If your pet is overweight….I encourage you to take the 10 Week Turnaround Challenge with Hill’s Science Diet Perfect Weight Food For Cats & Dogs! Here Are Some Tips!

  • Consistency, Routine and Balanced Nutrition are crucial.That means staying on schedule as best as you can so that you know that your pet is getting exactly what they need both nutritionally and when it comes to exercise.
  • Feeding Time should be on schedule and properly measured daily to ensure the success of your pets weight loss and health. It is a carefully measured amount of food to ensure they do not get too much or too little.
  • Use the feeding guidelines listed on the side of the Perfect Weight bag and feed the appropriate amount for what your pet should weigh and not what they currently weigh.
  • Measuring cups makes feeding time easy and you know that your pet is getting the perfect amount of nutrition to live healthy without the risk of over feeding.
  • When playing with your pet, help them to engage their brain in thinking activities and not just moving their bodies.

    I am very impressed with Shadows progress =^..^= He’s looking good! It’s so nice to hear about your love for Shadow, and insuring that he lives a longer, healthier life! I’ll have to check out Hill’s Science Diet…hopefully my 2 finicky kitties will like it 🙂 Great review!

    • mcushing7

      Thanks so much! Definitely try it out….this is a fabulous food and he looks amazing as compared to before. Shadow is super picky and he took to it…. I do sneak him some treats once in a while though… but not too much because he will try to get to them himself and wants them all of the time LOL! He will climb to get his treats, it’s so funny…. Thanks again and have a wonderful day!

  • Barrie

    So glad to hear that Shadow is a happier kitty! His coat looks shinier and he looks great!

  • Emily Endrizzi

    Way to go Shadow! I’m so glad this is working for you! My dog is on a strict diet, but not losing a bit of weight. 🙁

    • mcushing7

      I know! Did you enter the sweepstakes at the bottom of the post for a free 10 week challenge supply? You will receive 2 large bags of food and everything helps! Thanks for stopping by!

  • fairlanejen

    My cats are still young and we just fill the bowls when empty. After reading about Shadow, and the 2/3cup a day diet, I think we may have to take a different approach to feeding. Good job.

    • mcushing7

      I did the same thing! He would rub up on his bag of food, grab his snacks or just look at me a meow at his bowl…. so I always refilled! He does not do that as much now…. just the occasional cry for treats…. but the 2/3 cup a day is perfect for him. It keeps him fuller longer and he is so fine with it! Make sure you enter the sweepstakes at the bottom of the post to win 2 bags of cat food for your kitties!

  • Barrie

    I need a dog food to help my old dog gain weight! LOL. Since labs are prone to weight gain, it’s good to know this is available for our dogs!

      He is doing fabulous! He still begs for treats which I give sparingly but he is doing great on the Hills Science Diet Perfect Weight Formula!

  • Megan Scharlau

    One of my dogs is a super finnicky eater but she’s still overweight! Maybe this would help

  • Kristin K

    Shadow is a gorgeous cat!!! I have a cat who is a little bit overweight…but, this is due (I think) to the medication she is on for anxiety. I would love to be able to try a weight-loss management food for her, but it is so expensive! What do I do?

    • mcushing7

  • Natalie Brown

    Wow, that’s quite a bit of weight for a cat to lose in 10 weeks! My dog is slightly overweight (2-3 pounds) so this would be a good idea for him too. Thanks!

  • Sherry Keef

    You can see that Shadow looks so much better now. I have 3 cats and 2 dogs and this may be something I would consider giving to them.

  • Gabrielle

    Thanks for this! I’m very careful with my pets’ weight, but this is still something I am going to remember – just in case.

  • Carolyn Massey

    Thanks for the review on this product. We have an older dog and doesn’t exercise like he did when he was younger. Has arthritis and hard to get around. We worry about his weight, he is a 72 pound baby but not really over weight for a pitt.

  • Susan P.

    Some people feel they are depriving their pets when they cut back on food, but the animals do so much better at a healthy weight and not overweight.

  • Lisa Coomer Queen

    Great information here! Will pass it along to my husband. He deals with the dogs. Thanks!

  • Michele Ash

    Thanks so very much for the Fantastic Review on The Results of Shadow’s 10 Week Turnaround Challenge with Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight! It’s weird but, my dogs look like they are slightly overweight when their hair grows in. After they go and get their hair cut, they look so tiny! Both of my “fur babies” have an awful lot of hair that grows in, I think pretty darn quickly! They generally go for their grooming and haircuts every 8 weeks or so (depending on my friend’s schedule). They look huge to everyone when their hair is so overgrown and when they get groomed, everyone says what a big difference! They look like completely different dogs! They have an appt. at their vet’s office for their check up and I’ll ask the doctor if he thinks they are overweight or not. They go for their haircuts 2 days after their vet appt. Thanks so much for sharing your fantastic review, the pictures, and your personal and professional information on The Results of Shadow’s 10 Week Turnaround Challenge with Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight! with all of us! You know that I always appreciate our reviews!!!!!! Thanks again! Michele 🙂

    I am so happy for you and Shadow. This sounds like a great product. Thank you so much for sharing

  • Christina Strapp Lambert

    That is awesome he has lost all that weight! That is not easy to do on a cat. I am a vet tech and most of the cats we saw where overweight. Even my own cat is overweight but she has been on a diet for a long time. She is very lazy and does not exercise and doesn’t even like to really play with toys. Great job on his weight loss!!!

  • Stacey Roberson

    We tried Science Diet for our dog, but he wouldn’t eat it. I wonder if they make a food for weight gain.
