Sherpa Meows, "As a Farm Cat I Agree that Food is Love but I Like Cuddles Too!" #HillsPet

I want you all to know that I have a fantastic life as a Farm cat.
I think you all know this by now as I am not shy about meowing it.


I was thinking the other day - OK, stop laughing now! I think a LOT - I do!
Many pet slaves feel they have to show their love to their owners by feeding them. Maybe feeding them too much. This overfeeding can lead to overweight cats (and dogs) which is not good for the pets or their humans. I know the publicist around here responds to every hurt or ill with food - she does it with us animals and with the male person. She says it how she was brought up so it's what she knows. It drives the male person crazy sometimes! He says that despite what she claims chicken soup does NOT cure everything!

Mind you, I am not complaining because I LOVE getting treats. I, however go outside and run and play and chase mousies and lizards and snakes so I get a lot of exercise. For you kitties who aren't that active it might be a problem if your human overfeeds you.That might lead them to have to look into weight loss for cats (or dogs)!

Oh noes!

It's a good thing that Hill's Prescription Diet has a delicious line of foods and treats to help kitties and doggies who might need to lose some weight. It's their Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution line. Your human can still give you treats and really tasty food even if you need to lose some weight. I know that that the publicist has a hard time resisting "the look." All of us are masters of it and we have her very well trained -  in fact look at what she wrote the other day:





Isn't that Harry just brilliant?  We all have her doing exactly what we want! It's great to be a Farm cat!

That's the beauty of the Hill's Prescription Diet food - even if you are a kitty or doggie that needs to lose some weight your humans can still feel good about feeding you this tasty food. They don't have to worry that they are depriving you. You might not know if you need to take advantage of this food program so Hill's wants to help! The company has a fantastic program to help you and your friends' pets get to the vet for a Wellness Visit.  It's called the Tell a Friend Rebate Program - so if you know a kitty or doggie that hasn't gone to the doctor in a bit or might need a check up by all means encourage them to go - they will get a $25 rebate towards their Wellness Visit and so will you!

How do you take advantage of this program? It's very easy! Just fill out THIS FORM!
Very cool, right! It's very important that kitties and doggies go to the vet for check-ups. None of us like to go but just like humans we need Wellness Checks every year.

I have another great idea!
Let your humans know that there are other things you like as much as treats.


I happen to LOVE pets from the publicist.
She's very good at hitting all of the right spots. I'm not much of a purring cat but she can get me to purr.
I will meow you a secret - the male person cannot get me to purr!


She just has a special touch. Food is Love but I also need my pets.
Don't begin to think you can trade pets for treats though! I still want my treats - don't think that anyone can take them away!

I also like to play with the feather. The publicist tried and tried and tried to get photos of me but I was sneaky. I just jumped and ran too fast for her camera. The bonus to this is that playtime is fun exercise so that if I happen to eat a few too many treats I work them off as I chase the birdie feather.


And afterward I get more of those wonderful pets. Can you tell how much I love them? I am not the only one - ALL of us Farm cats love to be pet and the publicist is very good about making us purr. We missed her when she went away but she has made up for her absence. We made sure of it!

So be sure to keep your pet at a healthy weight but if they aren't you have help from Hill's! Their Prescription Diet food and treats are there to assist in weight loss. Plus there is the new program for a $25 rebate on a Wellness Visit to vet for you and a friend! Just fill out THIS FORM to apply.

Thanks Hill's that's wonderful! Almost as good as a treat. Or a pet.

  1. That's so interesting that only the publicist can entice a purr to come out!

  2. Hobbes went to the doctor and was put on this very food. He likes it, which is good---most diet cat foods are not very yummy. The only problem with this food is that you have to order and buy it from your vet. That can sort of be inconvenient sometimes--especially if you forget to order ahead of time.

    We will be visiting the vet in a week or so to see if he lost weight. Keep your fingers crossed!

  5. I may need to look into this. One of our cats is definitely a bit chunky.

    1. It's a good food. We get out a lot to run around but as we get older that might change so the publicist will keep this in mind for us too.

  6. That is good to know. I am allergic to cats, so I don't have one, but my inlaw's cat is a bit chubby, so this might help!

  7. I am a huge fan of this brand for my dog, but since we recently had a cat move in, maybe I should try it for him as well

    1. If your new kitty is plump take it to the vet and see if it is recommended. It is not good for any animal to be overweight.

  9. A couple years ago the mom changed the kitties' food and everyone lost weight while eating what they want because the food didn't have fillers. Quality food does make a difference.

    1. I agree with you! The publicist feeds us the best food she can. We know we are expensive; we hear the male person grumbling all the time.

  10. Great article! So Sherpa is a sucker for petting. I only purr for Pop, never TW, but I’m an equal opportunity biter. This is very healthy for me, as it keeps my teeth sharp and clean and they contain NO calories.

    1. I only bite when someone pets my belly. I do NOT like that. I also did not purr for two whole years! The publicist finally got some out of me.

  11. We had the chance to try this metabolic formula from Hill's when we won your giveaway last month. We slowly transitioned Sophie (my sister's cat) with half and half food until her stomach adjusted. She has already lost a few ounces and is eating smaller portions than before. And, of course we distract her from the food she isn't eating with plenty of love!

  13. Sherpa, I'm one of those cats that thinks food solves all the problems in the world. But the mom tries real hard not to feed me too much even though I probably would eat 24/7. I'm afraid I might need this food one day. ~Wally

    1. Then I am very glad it is there for you Wally. I admit that I pester the publicist more often than I should for treats. I am a master of "the look."

  15. If I don't get treats at 3am, somebody isn't going to get any sleep! :) Mommy has cut back on the amount of treats and foods we get though. We don't like it but what can we do. Sherpa, you are just so handsome!

    1. Thank you. I tend to chase my sparkle ball at 3AM right across the top of the publicist and male person.They do not like this. heh

  16. What a beauty! Keeping cats fit and healthy is important. I hate to see it when owners let their pets get really overweight and unhealthy.
