Disco Gets Down in Funky Town...

By down, we don't mean on the dance floor...we mean on the scale! He's down another one ounce this week and everyone has noticed the change in his physique.

At this rate, he will be under 14# by next week...the end of his 90 day participation in The Nu Campaign to Fight Pet Obesity. But, it won't be the end of Furrydance being a Nulo household, that's fur sure! And we all want Disco to meet the target weight of 12#, too!

All the cats are wild about the canned Turkey formula Nulo now, after a kinda slow start. In fact, the other canned food they were all previously in love with (Life's Abundance Instinctive Choice) has become 2nd choice, as this photo shows...

Here's what's in the Nulo Turkey canned food...remember those important 'first five ingredients'

Turkey, Turkey Broth, Chicken, Beef Liver, Tuna, Flaxseed, Oat Bran, Tomato Paste, Calcium Carbonate, Carrageenan, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Potassium Chloride, Dicalcium Phosphate, Salt, Betaine Anhydrous, Choline Chloride, Taurine, Iron Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Niacin, Vitamin E Supplement, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Vitamin A Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Sodium Selenite, Biotin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Menadione Sodium Bisulfate Complex, Folic Acid, Ethylenediamine Dihydriodide

It has been both fun and rewarding to also watch all the participants progress--Tahlula 'hauling nub', Xena is looking positively ravishing at 14.5#, Koa another pound lighter and Noah plateauing as Disco did for a while--don't give up, Noah!

Disco actually looks forward to, and 'guilts' me into playing stairclimb as I am ready to head to bed. We aren't getting in the 10-15 minutes 2 X a day that the experts recommend, but then it's better than skipping 'going to the gym', right?!

And since we are talking 'Turkey', we wanted everyone to know about the Nulo Petsgiving campaign. Nulo is helping feed shelter pets for Thanksgiving! Cat and dog lovers can help their less-fortunate furry friends stay healthy and happy this holiday season by participating in Nulo's "PetsGiving" food donation campaign between Nov. 1 and Nov. 25.

During this time, for every $25 customer order placed nationwide, the Austin-based pet food company will donate one pet Thanksgiving dinner to local Austin shelters. Each dinner includes Nulo's turkey and sweet potato recipe for dogs or turkey recipe for cats, plus cranberry treats or chicken treats for dessert.

These traditional Thanksgiving ingredients are part of Nulo's nutritional formula year-round. The company aims to produce the most nutrient-dense, transparently labeled cat and dog foods on the market. In place of the usual meat by-products, Nulo uses all-natural, single-source proteins like turkey, chicken, lamb and salmon. It also chooses nutrient-rich, low-glycemic carbohydrates like sweet potatoes and brown rice rather than corn and other cheap fillers that have become ubiquitous in commercial pet foods.

Here's how you can help...

Ps: Teri's on the road, delivering Spot & Dot to their new home, hence the lateness of her weekly Disco post, and she forgot before she left to download some good 'body shots' of the almost svelte Disco...but when she gets home on Sunday, she will add them to this post, promise!
