Many cat owners think that their cat doesn’t have these problems. However, in the United States, 58% of cats are overweight. 

The reasons why your cat is overweight are: inactivity, overeating, breed and neutering. The most common problems are overeating and inactivity. Many cat owners don’t have enough time to exercise with their cat. Also, they don’t have enough time to give her proper meal when a cat should eat. As a result, a cat becomes overweight. In order to know, is your cat overweight, you should know what the ideal weight is. For example, domestic cats should be between 8 and 10 pounds. Siamese cats are a bit lighter.
