Fat cats can be cute, but their lives are at serious risk. Cats who are overfeed can get overweight, which means that they’re at higher risk of problems such as diabetes, liver disease and urinary problems.

Giving your cat mealtimes can help reduce the risk of them overeating, rather than filling up a large bowl of food and letting them graze throughout the day.

Even when your cat is giving you the big sad eyes sitting next to their empty bowl, the best way to show that you love them is making sure that they’re staying at a health weight.
