      One of my cats, who is roughly 4-5 years old, is rather overweight and she tipped the scales at 5kg last time she was at the vet for her annual booster. She doesn’t really eat much but prefers dry food (Go Cat usually). If I feed her some wet food all she does is lick the jelly or gravy off it and leaves the meat. Is there a low calorie dry food that anyone can recommend? Bearing in mind what she does with wet food I don’t see the point in buying low-cal wet food for her.

      Usually cats don’t need lower calories, they need less food. How much and how often are you feeding her each day.

      It sounds like she may be consuming too much of her normal food.  A healthy, active, 10-lb adult cat requires 270-320 calories per day.

      Typically, dry food contains about 300 calories per cup.
