This may seem like a dumb question, after how long I've owned cats... What are the visible cues to an "in shape" cat? I know what to look for in dogs (you can look up my picture threads in Morgan and let me know whether or not I'm doing alright...), but I'm just not sure what to look for in the cats. Especially since they are both so different! Right now, the Kitty-Boy Brothers are eating Innova (canned) and Eagle Pack Holistic Select (dry). Ticheli gets ~1.5oz canned with ~1/2oz dry twice a day. Whitacre eats ~1oz canned with ~3/8oz dry twice a day. I say that everything is approximate because I try to adjust from day-to-day. Ticheli is just under 13lbs. You can see some definition to his hips when you look down at him from above. The thing that I wonder about him is that he has a lot of "belly swing"... I've never had a cat without this, but then again, I know that doesn't necessarily mean it's "normal". Whitacre is about 15lbs, and you can't really see any definition on him for anything. I wouldn't say he's "fat" per se (as a kid, my family had one obscenely fat cat, and Whitty is nowhere close... but again, I could be wrong), though he is definitely a lot "denser" than Ticheli. He also has some "belly swing", though it's not quite as obvious as Ticheli's. So... cat people? Thoughts? I know I should probably just post this on a cat forum, but I honestly have much better luck here. I'm sure the "belly swing" probably has something to do with their food not being grain-free. That is, if it's not supposed to be there. I am trying to slowly transition them to EVO (at least the dry EVO... but canned also if it's not too rich for them), but at the same time I have to hope and pray that I get a better job soon so that I can afford it. LOL! Or am I doing alright? Or do I need to sign them up for Maxy24's "Kitty Fit Club"? TIA!
