My cat is humongous. She is only 10 months old and already weighs around 18 lbs. What I don't understand is how she got that way. She is VERY active and has a healthy diet. I called the vet to talk to them about it and make an appointment and they told me it was probably just baby fat, and that they couldn't get me in until JANUARY. Has anyone ever experienced this? Should I be worried about it?

Switching to WET FOOD can do more bad than good... Making their POOO smell horrible for one..Â Â I have worked in a vets office for 2 years before i had my kids. giving her a multivitamin will help .making sure she isn't lacking in the thyroid hormone which helps with digestion, and helping when i tell you the next step , , Giving her a limited amount of the food will help...breaking this up 4 times 5 times a day. a bowl should last her ALL DAY! And the MultiVitamin WILL keep her healthy because you dont want to give her a low cal diet, and switch to a high fat diet, Besides the food change, take about 15 minutes a day and get kitty to play! An old fishing pole or just a rod of some kind with string and a catnip toy, feathers, etc. that he can chase will work wonders. Many of our furry kids gain weight for the same reason our kids and adults do, more intake than work off.Good luck.
