You could consider the following:
a) Dietary Managment - Hill's R/D/ or Hills W/D diets - note that the cat must be fed according to the manufacturers guidelines. Enroll on a Hill's weight watchers program - discuss this with your local veterinary practice. Please do not feed ad-libitum.
b) Lifestyle changes - Increase your cats exercise with play e.g. laser lights, toy fishing rods e.t.c. Encourage your cat to move by placing the food bowl between different rooms or using feeding toys.
c) Taking your cat to the vet to ensure that there is no underlying condition resulting in obesity such as endocrine problems, iatrogenic factors e.t.c
