F is for Fat

When a cat or dog is spayed, there is a chance of the poor baby becoming fat. That is much less likely to happen if the animal is young enough to have never gone into heat or have babies.

Unfortunately, that can be impossible with a rescue. Still, it's better in the long run than the complications and certain illnesses that are more common when a cat or dog is never spayed.

Miss Kitty was a rescue who was starving to death. Well, you can see that starvation is no longer a problem. Now comes the hard part of controlling her diet even though I have multiple cats. I have separate bowls for each of them, but I unfortunately have to sequester some of them while eating, or take the bowls to them and watch them eat, picking up the bowl when another cat walks over.
