Is your cat fat?
Don’t use YouTube as a guide. A pet in a viral fat-cat video is a feline Jabba the Hutt. In a healthy cat you can see the ribs, a waistline and a tucked tummy. For the fat cat, try...
Cutting down on treats. A 2.5cm cube of cheese is a third of a cat’s daily calorie allowance.
The Atkins diet. If carbohydrates make humans fat, imagine what they will do for a pure carnivore.
A laser pointer. Cats love to chase the dot of light, but in short five-minute bursts. At the end of a session, before switching it off, point it at a toy, so your cat sees it as a successful “hunt”.
