My grandma's cat has gotten rather overweight in recent years. Thankfully she's still an active cat, but that increasing rotundness does not look healthy.
My grandma told me that she can't really feed the cat less, because when she tried, the cat cried and scratched her. (This is normally a well-behaved, quiet, if very shy cat. Follows my grandma everywhere).
What I assume makes things difficult is that the cat won't eat wet cat food. It also does not like kibble mixed with water. So its normal meals are dried cat food, and with some fish/meat scraps from the kitchen on the side (has a water bowl).
Would you have advice?
I've seen 'Tiger Diner' cat bowls mentioned in a related post (https://pets.stackexchange.com/a/138/25460) . I'm happy to get one. Just wanted to check more thoughts, especially since the previous question did not mention scratching.
