Is your pet overweight? - Page 2

post #31 of 43
I have said mine are ideal, although I realised when doing claws this weekend that both feel heavier than normal, but they look OK, so have reduced their food (much to Tiger's disgust, she is still constantly demanding food!!), and will get them to play more.
Ellen - it is possible to make cats lose weight in multi-cat households, I have done it more than once, and have had up to 6 cats in the house - admittedly, one of the 3 (two were fosters, one was a permanent cat but picked up off the streets overweight) was easier than the other two. In fact, when I got Tom to lose 2kg, I also had 2 girls that needed to put weight on, and managed it.

Both of mine are just right, imo. I don't know what they weigh but I regularly feel around their middles to check I can feel their ribs and that there's not much fat that I can feel.

Out of 19+1 kitten, only 2 cats are overweight and yes, they are on a diet now. The rest are all of perfect weight! However, although Lou is at optimum weight, he could put on more muscle instead of fat! I'm putting him on an excercise program now....

Mine fit in all 4 of the cat categories - Scully has another lb to lose before the vet takes him down from obese to overweight and Autumn needs to gain 2lbs to be at her ideal

My little Sadie is just under 10lbs, just right for her size.

On the other hand, her brother Dexter is part piggie.
That boy weighs in at 16 lbs.

Skye and Calamity are both tiny cats. Calamity was actually a little overweight when I got her from living off hot dogs and hamburgers. But now shes nice and trim. And Skye was extremely underweight when I got her. She spent 3 days at the vets to get her stable enough to go to a foster home. It took her a long time to gain weight. They are both still on kitten food so far because Clammy looses to much weight on adult and Skye just hasnt gotten fat so I havnt switched her.

I just got back form the vet and they told me, over Petunia's growling and hissing, that Pepper is about a pound overweight. He told me to switch him to Light food, which I have aleady done, so hopefully he will lose a little more weight.

Autumn?!?!!!??? I missed the addition of her to your fur family! Now I have to go searching through posts... Congrats!

My girls are all ideal weight. Lily is a little under 9lbs and all long limbs. Smudge is also a little under 9lbs and is solid looking, but mostly fur. Stumpy is about 8lbs and a petite girl.

Nikita is 12 pounds and looks like this:



She's in perfect shape I even got a big compliment on her overall condition from the vet, the last time she had her booster shots.

two of my babies are at their ideal weight, while my oldest is about a pound over. I've already put her on a bit of a diet but it's been at least a year and she's still not at her ideal weight on the diet tmy vet suggested.
I'm slowly going to start all my cats on a raw food diet... first tidbits to be mixed in with canned food start tonight...
