I can't imagine why this one has a weight problem.

A vet on tv suggested putting a single cat treat in different places around the house. His thought was once it becomes a habit they keep checking those places for more treats creating exercise for them.

Getting her a kitten is a great idea.

My dog would just eat any treats...the cat is too fat to jump up on anything, so I can't put treats up out of the dog's reach.

No kitten, no thanks. I'm DONE with cats after this one goes.

I know it's unhealthy for them, but there really is something so adorable about a chubby cat!

My cat is pretty svelte, but my dog, on the other hand, is a real chunker... I swear, she's got a double chin!

She and I are both on a mission to lose 10 pounds in 2009.

My parents had a fatty cat...they tried to put him on a diet and he'd get so mad that all night he'd meow and lick and basically annoy my dad. One night my mom woke up to find my dad out in the kitchen filling the food bowl to overflowing and muttering about "not caring how fat the cat gets just so he shuts up"!!

My mom also used to find mysterious small round bruises all over her body and finally realized it was from the cat's paws when he walked around on her at night

Fat cats = funny, but feline diabetes ≠ fun

My cat had it but it was because of a tumor near her pancreas that threw her insulin levels outta wack.

My boys have have had weight problems, but I bring it into line asap whenever their weight creeps up.

Twice daily injections, coming home to find them in a coma, special diets and monthly vets visits … oy. Not good.

I too have a 20lb cat. He's just a big boy. I reduced his food intake, but he's still big. I have to feed him a 1/4 cup 3x per day. I can't do it all at once or he'll wolf it down and barf it up. So I have to spread it out throughout the day so I don't step in a surprise or have to hear about it. He's a talkative kitty.

He's also SUPER picky. He won't eat wet food. He just lets it sit there until it dries up. He also won't eat damp food at all. I was mixing in some fish oil on his food because he developed a dry skin problem. Took him forever to eat that. He likes tuna water, but not tuna chunks. But he LOVES pub cheese, cereal milk, and iced tea. (No, I don't give him these, he just pesters me when I have them.) He also won't touch people food you leave for him, scraps of anything just dry up and get gross so you have to throw him away.

He's an indoor cat. I will never have another outdoor cat. I lost my 3 of my favorite cats ever that way. He's active when I play with him. His favorite toys are shadows and feathers. The cat can get some serious air. I've even gotten him to do a backflip!

He's also a big baby. He likes nothing more than to be picked up so he can lay right over your shoulder or nuzzle into your hair. He gets heavy pretty quick. He also likes to stretch up and "scratch" on you (he's declawed, I inherited him that way). He also likes to sleep on me, generally on my hip and side. It makes it very hard to move. Lately he can sense when I want to get up so that's when he jumps up and gets comfy.
