If your cat seems to be thirstier than usual, is urinating frequently, is hungry all the time but also losing weight, you should have him checked by your veterinarian for feline diabetes.
f a cat's high blood pressure goes unchecked, the most common eventual symptom will be sudden, acute blindness. Blood vessels in the eye will burst, causing the retina to detach, and the kitty will lose part or all of her eyesight.
Here are my favorite recommendations for getting the overweight feline in your life up and moving.
A cat is constipated when the stool is too large and/or hard to be passed. If your kitty is straining in her litter box but has nothing much to show for it, or if her poop is dry and hard, it's likely constipation is to blame.
My guess is that humans will forever try to get inside the heads of their feline companions to learn what lies behind those gorgeous, mysterious eyes. What is she thinking about? What's she about to do? Is she staring at me, or through me? Does she love me, or loathe me?
Felines are unique creatures. Your cat's physiology is distinctive, as are her nutritional requirements. Even the way her body is constructed -- her incredible physical flexibility -- is distinct from most other creatures.
