Keeping your cat’s weight in check

Unlike in the wild, your cat relies on you to feed her a balanced diet to stay healthy. While it might be hard to resist her pleading, and treats may be a part of her playtime, do occasionally check her weight and do not over-indulge.
Weigh yourself first. Then, step on the scales while holding your cat in your hands. The difference between the two weights will give you her weight.
Standing above her, look for a slight “waist”, behind the ribs. If you place your hands around her upper waist, you should be able to feel the ribs. Check for pouches of tubbiness in the groin area or under her belly. If you can feel her ribs when you place both hands on her sides, she’s okay. However, if the ribs are sticking out, she’s too thin.
Take her to the vet for a health check-up and to get recommendations on feeding and diet. If her health still doesn’t improve, take her to the vet for a follow-up.
