Well, we all have seen them, I bet. Fat cats.
But here's the question: How do we really tell if we have a fat cat?
Well, if you put your hand on their spine, you should be able to easily feel their rib cage. If you don't then your kitty may need to lose some pounds. I have a fat cat, and I'm woring hard to make her healthy again. Mostly I monitor her feeding, making sure she doesn't eat my other cat's food. I soon learned that the reason that my other cats were skinny was from the other cat eating their food! Well, my fat cat, AmberLeaf, is looking a little skinnier. But sometimes it may become worse, and if you have tried to skinny up your cat to no avail, I would contact a vet, for it may be something terrible, maybe even cancerous. But most likely it's just from being over-weight, which can also be prevented with some special kitty food, which can be bought from your vet, or sometimes even in the store. I get mine from the vet, though.
I also have a question: How do you get fleas off a cat? We've sprayed the house, and washed all the animals: 1 dog and 3 cats. We still have fleas. Any tips?
