pouch on the underbelly...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hello all, first post here, thought this wouls be a nice place to chat...

i have a 2 yr old siamese tabby mix, and ive noticed as hes been walking around that he has this pouch hanging lower on his underside, almost between his back legs. My wife thinks hes just getting fatter, but i thought itd show a little more centered than that. He's been neutered and has had his shots...should i get this checked out? his behaviour has been otherwise normal...

thanks all...

When was he neutered? Mister developed his pooch about a month after being neutered.

hmm...i believe it was last november.
ive been wondering about it, because he seems to VERY vocal whenever this female cat comes around my door, to point of howling. Could it be a no-so-successful neutering?

I dunno about the neuturing.. But I will tell you the little pooch is normal. Just make sure he isn't too fat with your vet. I don't know if it has anything to do with getting neutured or not. Rocky had one before getting neutured, though it has certainly gotten bigger.

My Kipper has enourmous "poochie" is what we call it. And it DID happen shortly after being neutered, but he also gained lots of weight after that too, and it just got bigger. It's no big deal for him, he's just our big boy.

Our sweet Bijou has a lovely pouch too!

Both our cats (both neutered males) have pouches. Oz's is a bit more noticeable, because he's lost some weight (on a vet-approved diet plan, not due to ill-health or anything like that!), and our vet told us that sometimes it can be very difficult to get rid of this last little bit of flab. (Sort of like how when we humans gain or lose weight, there's generally one place on our bodies that is the first to show weight gain and the last place to lose it.) It sounds like your cat's pooch is in the same place as my cats', but it certainly can't hurt to take him in to the vet just to be on the safe side.

Oh wow - I was gonna ask the same question!

Our Foley has, as we call it, "Flubby Belly" too!

Its wobbley and he doesnt mind us goofin with him/it. He has a "bunny fluff" underbelly that we love to pet, and he loves it as well. Belly rubs for cats are so odd lol, but he likes it.

Im so glad its not really something to worry about - hes not 'fat' but just .. pudgy and fluffy? lol
