thats gross. That poor cat needs to be on a restricted diet, and a high quality weight loss diet as well. If it doesn't have problems already it will soon develop them.

I agree that this kitty needs to go on a diet. Poor thing who likes diets?! Anyway I still think your nkitty looks adorable.

Not my kitty. lol Linx is too active in the summer to be fat like that. He has a empty skin pouch that flaps about, but not chubby like that cat!

There's a link to read. And the weirdest thing in the article...

he's not allowed meat and has to be content with biscuits.

What kind of diet is that? No meat?

I don't know what biscuits are to the Brits...for people it's usually a bread-type or short bread type cookie to eat with a cup of tea. But for kitties? No idea.

thats horrible, no wonder why the cat is so fat, biscuits don't contain any nutritional value

I've heard kibble referred to as biscuits in the UK. That is so tragic. And they've got it backwards, the cat should be taken off all kibble and given a meat-based, wet food diet. :sad:

I wonder if by 'meat' they mean table scraps.

IE - no scraps, just kibble.
