11 Animals Who Nailed the Weight Loss Game, And Inspired Us All

Despite their cuteness, overly chubby or fluffy animals aren’t healthy. Pets spend much of their time indoors. They are no longer reliant on foraging for food on the open range. They have a tendency to overindulge in food. Obesity and overweight pets are unavoidable when calories are consumed in excess of calories burned. Some pet owners have gone to extraordinary lengths to make their overweight pets look and feel better, and the results have been nothing short of amazing. These are some of the best photos of animals before and after their weight loss adventures.


1. His fur has gotten a lot better too! Way to go Kato!!

At the time of adoption, Kato’s new owner saw that he was clearly overweight. The cat became accustomed to overeating. Over the course of a year, the size of his portions returned to normal, and today we can see the excellent result.

2. He looks extremely happy with his post-diet body.

Because his owner was unaware of a condition, Boss was 35 pounds overweight when the veterinarian discovered it.

They are now both extremely content with their lives and situations.
