What does your cat weigh?

Do you keep a close watch on your cat’s weight?  It’s a tendency for indoor cats to slowly put on the pounds, due to the lack of exercise and overeating (just like their human counterpart).  This can cause so many health problems for our fur friends – diabetes, arthritis, heart problems and more. Cats can’t be blamed for this, we have to be in control. This can be tough love on our parts, when they are meowing for a treat.

I have to admit at our house we are a little compulsive about this, as we like the look of a lean, healthy cat.  We monitor their eating and how their body looks and try to have a little “playtime” everyday. The chart below is a good guide to judging if your cat is overweight. Besides the “belly” of the cat, we also see any weight gain in the face. Our cat right now is about a 4 to 5 on the chart.  Take a look and see how you would rate your cats.  As with anything else, if you catch a problem early it’s easier to correct.  A trip to the vet would confirm any weight or health issues that need addressing.

      Hi Patricia, I am low on some stock because the manufacturer is out of many styles. For instance, the Punkin Pin and the Ester Pin. I am doubtful they will get more stock in before Christmas, hopefully they will get some before Easter! Thanks for the interest. Any other styles you need?
