    I WILL SAY ANY PERSON THAT ALLOWS AN ANIMAL TO GET OBESE IS NOT THINKING ABOUT THEIR HEALTH,,,,, animals will eat what ever you put in front of them So if you fill their dish and then refill it again and again ,, you are doing them serious harm…… You shorten their lives and their breathing is comprimized….. fluffy and fee then can not go up and down the stairs which results in you carring them all over the place, and that stops all exercise which again makes it far worse in the long run… Let them walk, get out the ball, frisbee, leash, toys,,, play with them , they are an extension to your family,, treat them as is they were family,,, its not healthy at all for them……..By the way the photo about is a perfect example of a extremely pampered over weight cat ,,, its owner does to much for it,, probably carries it around too… put down the kitty treats and pick up the cat toys and play with it,, ITS GOOD FOR BOTH OF YOU,,,,,,,FLUFFY WILL LOVE YOU LONGER,,,,,,,,,,

    the simes cats does cry alot
    i had a gray cat like the one in pic the person that had him over feed him by time i got him he was 17 lb. i got him good cat food he lost all of the weight and not over feed them 1 small can of wet cat food with the dry in the morning and 1/3 cup of the dry at supper time with water on the side they should not get fat.
    If you buy good cat food at pet smart or petco for dog and cat they should not get fat as long you check with your vet to see how much you have to feed them.
    some dogs need more food then cats thats why you need to check with the vet
    have good day
