Man, this cat is FAT! Check it out for yourself on this video:
After posting this one, i just found an even FATTER kitty! Jickes, this one is REALLY fat!
What do you think about that? Isn’t that cat a poor little thing?
After all, even though some people say that they like “their cats nice and squishy and fat” there is also the animal to consider:
Fat is not very healthy and can cause all kinds of health problems such as diabetes, lung problems, heart failure, kidney issues, cancer and so much more.
How can that poor fat thing even MOVE up and down the stairs or run about after mice? I don’t suppose that it really can. Do you think that your cat would be happy so fat as this one?
Why do you think that his owners let him or make him so fat? For the fame?
If so, I’d rather have a healthy and happy cat then a fat cat!
What do you think? Is it good to have a fat cat or not?

Is food from the pet store better for your cat than homemade cat food? After all the cat food companies are the experts…right? Not to mention the fact that all you have to do is open a can or a bag and dish it out. Well some people might beg to differ with you. They feel that homemade cat food is the better alternative.
In the days when people did not have easy access to the store to buy food for their cats, they fed them from what they had available which was basically, homemade cat food. Did you ever notice those cats were around for a long time? You did not see a different cat every time you went to their house. So maybe there is something to feeding your cat food that is a little healthier than the canned variety.
After all, with all the recalls that have been in the news as of late, for cat food as well as people food, maybe we would all be healthier if we cooked our own food instead of simply opening a can. The truth of the matter is, you can feed your cat either home made cat food or some thing that can be eaten without being cooked and they will eat that far better than the store bought food.
Pet food that is made commercially may not have all the nutritional supplements that cats need in a daily diet. The food is processed using extremely high temperatures and this could cause some loss of vitamins. Another additive is animal fats. When these are added to the commercial cat food to make it more appealing to your pet, you are feeding your cat food that is tantamount to you eating junk food all the time.
Additionally when animal fats and other preservatives are added, they are enough to make your cat become quite overweight, develop diseases, and lose all their energy. No longer do they feel like jumping and chasing imaginary mice. They become lazy and fat. The number one thing to remember about cats is they were born to be hunters and catch their food.
By eating uncooked meat, they were getting the necessary nutrients to keep in good shape.
When modern day cats became house pets, the need to hunt was forsaken. Instead, they spend most of their time inside and when they are fed canned cat food, the result is they become the cat version of the couch potato. Just by experience, many people have figured out that by feeding their cats a healthier more natural diet they are living longer and healthier lives.
If you consider using either meat-by products or real meat, do you think your cat would prefer home made cat food? Sure he would! Which would you prefer? Something that you opened from a can that had artificial flavors, preservatives, animal fats, and meat-by products or would you rather have something that you made.
Cats are the same; and most times, even more finiky than we are. They would rather have homemade cat food.
Change the food that you are serving your cat to preserve his health and prevent an early death.
Fat cats are common problems these days, since many people can’t take there cat out for walks, especially if you live in a city apartment, it might be very dangerous to let your cat go outside.
She might be run over, eaten by a dog, bitten, frightened and so much more!
Another problem that might cause your cat to be fat, is like with humans, the problem of ‘over eating’.
If you are not at home to check how much your cat is eating, she or he could quickly develop fat rolls and jiggling fats from eating too much.
Cats generally don’t know when to stop eating and will eat a lot if not supervised.
Here are Five Tips to Prevent Your Cat from eating too much:
Never overfill your cat’s food dish. You can always top it up later.
Don’t give your cat any greesy foods that YOU eat.
Don’t let your cat deside how much she is going to eat. YOU deside it!
Get your cat a automatic cat food feeder if you have to leave her alone at home.
(it will help you and your cat very much, since it will prohibit your cat from eating too much!)
Give your cat fresh meats and raw eat to eat. It is healthy and natural and won’t make your cat as fat as other foods may!
How much you feed your cat and what you feed it, are one of the leading things that make cats fat.
But not only that!
Cats need to excersize themselves, just like you and i need to do. They however, can’t go to a gym or sports classes.
Their sports classes and gym, has to be at home.
Most house cat aren’t motivated to do any excersize, to run around in circles after their tales, or jump on your tables. They’d much rather sit and get fat.
That is why YOU have to help your cat stay thin and entertain her with fun toys and games!
The more your cat will run after a mouse or string, the faster it will burn away its fat and get thin again.
Five best games and toys for cats:
A Cat Mouse (kitty loves to play with mice and bite them, rub against them and chuck them across the floor and run around after it)
Feather on a string (looks like a bird and makes cat jump around after it)
Electric cat toy mouse (runs around and makes kitty chase after it)
Laser pointer cat toy (cat doesn’t know where the light comes from and runs crazily after it. Getting rid of another fat roll!)
Undercover Cat mouse toy (mouse runs around and around under a cover and cats go crazy)
I have two adult male cats one of which weighs about 15lbs and the other weighs about 9lbs. I would like my “Fat Cat” to lose about 5lbs however both of my cats are fed from the same food dish at the same time of day. Does anyone know how I can put one cat on a diet without putting my other cat on a diet as well?
I have 2 cats. They are both overweight. We feed them Purina Naturals or something like that. We want the best, dry cat food designed specifically for overweight cats. They are adults, 5 and 9 years old. We feed them 1/3 of a cup twice a day, once in the morning, and once at night. We give them snacks throughout the day as well. I think we are feeding them too much. What do you think?
•How much food do they need each day?
•And how many times to they need to be fed that amount?
