As always with any cat complaint, physical or behavioural, a veterinary visit is the first step!!

I agree with Barbara, be sure and discuss any concerns with your veterinarian.

I'm dealing with hyperthyroidism in one of my cats. She used to be a little plumb but got very skinny. I feed her wet food 3 times a day just to keep the weight on her. She also has dry food 24/7. She's on medication and natural medicine which seems to be working well with her. I have another cat who looks very over weight but her fur is 4" long and stick almost straight out. Those that don't know her comment on how obese she is until they try to pick her up and realize she's all fur.

My oldest is a overweight. medically, he checked out fine. He is playful enough. He's just a pig in disguise.

As you watch your diet make sure you watch your animals diet and exercise too.

Interesting. The youngster that owns me thankfully doesn't overeat but it always helps to keep an eye open.

Thanks. Mine eats sparingly but is still overweight at 9 years. I think spaying has a lot to do with the weight gain and physical appearance as a cat ages.

Presently we have a kitty who is hyperthyroid. She's been on meds. for about 5 yrs. - a gel that goes in her ears. It seems to be working well and she's a good weight for her size. Years ago we had a cat that was a food hound for no apparent reason. We had him to the vet time and again but tests did not revela anything. He was also a layabout after he reached adulthood. That just seemed to be his normal.
