Come on now this cat is not obese. Given the headline,i was sure to see a 25 pound cat at least. I cannot imagine this cat having a grand old time in this pool. Cats HATE water. Perhaps another option may be less stressful and actually provide better results,no???

Maybe a healthy diet would be less stressful doesn't look to happy to me.

Both Holly and her carer should get some exercise!

I saw a clip on TV. I felt so sorry because this poor cat could hardly walk (20 pounds) and I was wondering if she has a problem with her legs or spine.
Poor thing, but she could move her legs in the water, on the ground she can hardly stand on them. I guess, because she can't walk, she has no mucsles left in her legs. This is terrible!!! How can they feed her so much! This is cruel! Why don't they feed her a healthy diet... more "good" proteines and less carbohydrates.
I feel so bad for this poor cat.

This particular cat doesn't seem to mind the water -probably because her face isn't getting wet. If I could get my tubby Spencer into the same suit, I would try the same thing.

I think a healthier diet would benefit kitty and owner more than a swim "every other week".
