Unhappy Fat, Dandruffy

I have the sweetest squishiest kitty named Charlie.

Charlie, heaven help him, is definitely over 20 lbs. Morbidly obese.

The poor boy has very dry skin as well, and this must be very uncomfortable for him.


I am concerned about his weight, so I have him on Iam's Weight Control food in the blue bag.

I also wish I knew of something that would make his coat and skin more supple, without increasing his body weight or jeopardizing his health.

I found him as a stray last year, I'm not sure of his age, but he appears young, maybe 2 or 3 at the most. He is in otherwise excellent health as far as I know, and is more youthful, playful, and alert than you would expect out of a fat cat.

Please help me help Charlie!
