***Wednesday Workouts with Wilford!*** . Let’s be honest- Some days, the gym just isn’t happening! That’s ok though! We all need rest days- even Wilford. 💗 . I keep getting asked how much weight Wilford has lost, so let’s walk through his status! . Wilford has been with us for just under a month now. He’s been through SO much during that short time: . First, he lost his home and his family and landed in our foster room. He was very reluctant to eat, so he went to the vet for bloodwork and a general check up. He continued to struggle, so he went back to the vet for appetite stimulants, anti-nausea medications, and x-rays. . We finally got his appetite up and stable, but his coughing/wheezing got really intense, so he went back to the vet. He then went on antibiotics for an upper respiratory infection and started on an inhaler for asthma. . During those weeks, his tummy was upset, and he had lots of loose poops, so he was getting frequent baths to help keep him clean. . Then, last week, he suddenly stopped pooping, so he went to the vet yet again. He got more x-rays and some cleaning out, and appeared to stabilize again, but is creeping back towards constipation again. . Throughout all of this, he’s also getting bathed regularly, being challenged to exercise, and has been introduced to 5 new cats (of which he is terrified). . So- how much weight has he lost? None. . And I am totally ok with that. . Wilford is on a restricted calorie diet and eating a high quality food. He’s getting exercise on a daily basis, and he’s starting to wheeze less and less every day. He’s struggling to get his bowels moving consistently, but he’s happy, purrs when pet, and enjoys cuddles and playing with toys. . While he obviously needs to lose a lot of weight- and that is our goal for him- it will take a lot of time and it is going to happen very slowly. We are going to work at his pace and keep our focus on his overall well-being. . He is a wonderful cat and just like all of us, some days he just needs a break. 💗 . #wilford #wilfordthegreat #fosteringsaveslives #catsofinstagram
Jedan od uvjeta udomljavanja jest primjerena njega koja će pomoći životinji da se oslobodi suvišnih kilograma. Briga o Wilfordu podrazumijeva uravnoteženu prehranu i puno fizičke aktivnosti koja će mu pomoći smršati.
Hraniteljska porodica u kojoj se Wilford trenutno nalazi ima svoj službeni Instagram profil pod imenom @PokeyPotPie. Trenutno ih prati oko 135.000 korisnika i svakodnevno izvještavaju o stanju životinja koje su pod njihovim nadzorom. Od 2010. godine postali su utočište za više od 100 mačaka.
"Najlakše je osuditi njegove bivše vlasnike. Poručujem ljudima da s malo više empatije gledaju na Wilfordovu situaciju. Iako zahtijeva posebnu njegu, on je nevjerovatna mačka. Ne mogu zamisliti da su ga se tako lako odrekli i teško mi je razmišljati o razlozima zbog kojih je došao u ovakvo stanje. Njegovi bivši vlasnici morali su potražiti pomoć koja mu je bila nužna. Vjerujem da je Wilford sada na pravom putu", kaže za magazin People dama koja se trenuto brine o mačku.

Look at this hunka-hunka walking around and being all confident! 💗 . Wilford has made great strides (literally and metaphorically) over the past week. He’s walking around more, playing more, and acting much more self-assured around our resident cats. I’m so proud of him! . . *************DISCLAIMER************ Yes, Wilford is morbidly obese. No, it’s not ok. He is a foster and he is being treated for his obesity as well as other issues. He is under veterinary supervision. *************************************** . #Wilford #wilfordthegreat #wilfordbrimley . . #adoptdontshop #fosteringsaveslives #foster #ldcrf #handsomecat #adorable #studmuffin #cats #catsofinstagram #preownedcat #obesecat #fatcat #love #weightlossjourney #lostdogandcatrescue #adopt #cat #love #adoptyourbestfriend #lovemeow #bestmeow l #cathealth #obesepet #weightloss #cute #adorable
Sadašnja vlasnica vjeruje da je Wilford tokom prošlog razdoblja uživao u ljubavi osoba koje su se brinule o njemu.
"Jako je simpatičan i uživa u pažnji ljudi. Nekada je bio pravi mezimac i može se reći da je malo razmažen", dodaje ona.

Wilford obožava češkanje po stomaku i igru mahalicama od perja. Radoznao je i pogledom prati sva zbivanja u kući. Ne voli se baš kupati, ali još uvijek ispituje sve pogodnosti koje mu pruža njegov sadašnji dom.
"Obožava svoje dnevne rutine i prostor u kojem se osjeća sigurno i samouvjereno. Nerado napušta svoju zonu udobnosti. Protest iskazuje tako što legne na leđa, cvili, a tu je i tužan pogled. Vrlo je zabavan i drag", navodi njegova vlasnica.
Iako je bojažljiv i sramežljiv, sadašnji vlasnici kažu da pokazuje znakove radoznalosti i napredak u osvajanju nepoznatog.
