There is a disturbing trend towards tubby tabbies in recent years. Indeed, more than half of the pet felines in the US are now considered overweight. It is an epidemic. Now more than ever, it is essential that every owner recognizes if their favorite fur-kid is becoming a touch “portly”.
The signs that your cat is fat are:
The Cat door is retro-fitted with a garage door opener.
Confused guests constantly mistake him for a beanbag chair.
There are fewer calls to the fire department, but a sudden upsurge in broken tree branches.
The cat has been pregnant for fifteen months — and still no kittens.
He no longer cleans himself unless he is first coated in Cheese Whiz.
The cat door has been enlarged so often it is now big enough for the St. Bernard next door to visit.
The cat food dish is replaced with a cattle trough.
The luxurious, shiny black fur has been replaced by a mint green polyester pants suit.
It’s no longer safe to lift kitty without a spotter.
He waits for the third bowl of food before he gets finicky.
He only catches mice that get trapped in his gravitational pull.
His enormous gut keeps your hardwood floors freshly buffed.
and the number 1 sign that your cat is fat is:
He has more chins than lives.
