Dad took me to the Vet for a trim in a weird place. Trust me friends, you don't want more information than that! Anyhoo, while I was there the Vet took my weight and gave me an exam for the pet insurance people. And according to the Vet I'm fat and bordering on obese! What?! Mom says I'm not fat; I'm just FLUFFY! And my Mom wouldn't lie to me. What do you think? Does all this fluff make me look fat?!
Dad said he asked her if it wasn't just part of me being a Maine Coon/possible Norwegian Forest cat breed. She said no, that she was basing her assessment on my profile. That I'm missing some nice trim shape tuck thing near my hind quarters... Whaaaa?! The only cat I know with a trim tuck is Captain Morgan. And he's obsessed with food.
The Vet told Mom & Dad to stop just putting out bins of food for us and start regulating us to half a cup of dry food a day... GROAN! That's no fun! I'll starve!!! Mom says she's trying exercise first and researching this a little. She says I keep "pudging out and then getting taller." And since Maine Coons take 3 years to get to full size; she thinks I might just be preparing for a growth spurt.
What do you think?!

I think you're just fluffy! My vet tried to tell me I was fat too. I think it's a conspiracy.
You are fluffy! But exercise is always good. We 3 cannot resist DaBird feather teaser!We are convinced a bird is in da house! Amazon.com has them.
Also your mom is right. You are not finished growing yet. But free feeding is not a good idea. I can walk away from food. I am also the least chubby. Ollie who can eat all day and steals from me every chance he gets is on the way to chubby. He is not fluffy and he is no Norwegian forest kitty. MOL
