It can be hard to tell when cats aren't obviously obese, but what are some signs that my cat might be overweight?
It's a wee bit like humans - you can sort of see it and feel it.
With your cat, you want to be able to feel the ribs, not necessarily see them, and see a bit of your waist. If your cat is overweight, you're going to struggle to feel the ribs. There will be a bit of fat covering the ribs, and it will start to lose it's waist a bit and lose that nice hourglass figure.
Just think of the human way of looking for your overweightness and apply that to your cat with your hands. So feeling, but also with your eyes.
There's several tools that can help. You can use WSAVA Body Condition Score and Chart for cats. These can be found online. They'll help guide you into deciding, is your cat the ideal weight or is it actually overweight?
And if you're not sure, take it down to your vet clinic. They have cat scales that they can weigh your cat on and give you the ideal weight that your cat should be.
