There's been a lot of posting about overweight cats, and I was curious. I expect Chaynal to be a really big kitten, since he was the biggest his breeders' had ever had, but I want to be sure he's not "too big". I've seen the diagrams for looking at cats to tell if they're overweight, but this just doesn't seem to work for him. Looking from behind and above, he looks chubby, but I can't tell if its just his fur since Birmans are a longish medium hair length. When I try and feel underneath his fur, he doesn't feel especially rounded. I can feel his ribs without any trouble (they're not sticking out, don't worry!). So guys, how to you tell if a fluffy long-haired cat is overweight?
