Lilleah - Have you seen some of these cats, though? They're very overweight, and cannot be in good condition at those weights. I don't know if any of them are "photoshopped," but even so, I don't like the image it is portraying. You wouldn't post pictures of your overweight kids and brag about them, would you? I've never seen a "fat kids" photo page. Why is it ok with pets? In fact, news stations like this are always doing stories about obesity in children, how children need to get in shape to avoid diabetes and high blood pressure, etc.
Well I didnt see any of the pics. I just clicked on the site you gave, and seen that they were asking for pics of fat cats. And that's what I based my reply upon. Just the fact that they were asking for pics of fat cats didnt bother me one bit. I've actually seen some Maury shows, about how some kids parents are fine/happy about thier kids being fat. Sometimes it's just in all who you
are. Part of life.
Fat cats are no different then fat kids. Oh well. They're fat. But they are still cute. Some cat and or Kids are just ment to be fat. Maybe it's in them to BE fat. Some childeren are born with that. Same with cats.
I dont think that any pics of fat cats portray what happens with thier feeding. You would need to speak with thier owners & find that out.
All I'm saying..
Pictures of fat cats dont tell a story about how they are fed. Maybe they are just fat.
AND fat cats arent something to get all mad about. Especially if it's a Television station simply asking for some picutres.
Sorry-had to get it out. Mostly because...Kipper is FAT. He isnt over-fed. And the vet says he just fine. He is another normal cat. Just bigger.
