A. I have attached a link for a cat weight chart which can help you determine your cat's condition and what an overweight vs. Healthy weight cat typically presents as. You can view this here: http://burnspet.co.uk/petcare/dog-cat-body-condition-chart.html Pets suffer from being overweight much like humans do and it can cause adverse health defects. You may consider changing your cats diet to a lower calorie food, there are many on the market available. I would also urge you to try and encourage your cat to be more active, if he will go for walks, more play time etc. Even spreading all his necessities out around the house like have his litter, food, and water all spread out as far apart in the house as possible so the cat has to do a little extra walking to get the them. Its a tiny step but over time adds up. If you need additional help with weight loss or determining his condition I recommend you consult with your vet.
