Either Nutro or Felidae are excellent cat foods - however the trick will also be in feeding. Most vets are now recommending scheduled feedings instead of free-feeding. Initially you should feed at the recommended level for the cat's ideal weight. If the cat doesn't lose weight, then the vet should be called for advice on how much to cut back.

In selecting a good cat food look for human quality protien and avoid cornmeal since the thinking now is that is what is making so many cats overweight and diabetic.

Also see if you can increase her playtime a bit. Perhaps several short sessions every day. Increase them by only a minute or two a week or so, and you might find that she will play more willingly!

Good luck!
