    The Mayhew Turns Fat Cat Slim

    A fat cat who was so obese that animal welfare officers were forced to take him into their care to save his life has shed half his weight.

    Weighing in at 13kgs, Tiger was so obese that he struggled to breathe and was at death’s door until The Mayhew stepped in.

    We were forced to take action after his owner found it difficult to put him on a diet so we used Section 9 of the Animal Welfare Act to take him into our care.

    Two years on and he is half the puss he used to be thanks to a moggy diet of 55 grams of dry food a day.

    Zoe Edwards, Mayhew Animal Welfare Manager, is warning cat owners not to overfeed their pets.

    “Tiger would have died if we hadn’t intervened so we had to remove him as he was in such distress. We would urge people not to over-feed their cats. The Animal Welfare Act places a duty of care on people to ensure they take reasonable steps to meet the welfare needs of their animals.”

    Tiger, who is now ready for a new home, is a lovable 13-year-old who adores affection.

    He’s very sensitive and needs a calm home with a garden without other pets or children. His diet will need to be maintained by his new owners.
