|I have the "spay sway," and my brother has a fat pouch. Our mama cat was large and in charge, so we will probably be pretty big too. The vet told Mother that cats store fat on their abdomen the same way human women store fat in their hips/thighs/tummies. It's the cat "problem area," if we were so vain as to be concerned with an extra curve here and there! Totally normal. But she also said to watch the girl cats because sometimes they "pack on the pounds," after getting fixed. There was a thread the other day about the laser pointers, which we LOVE to chase around. A couple of times a day, get Sasha really running, and she will keep a healthy weight on.
We are also not allowed to free feed because we eat however much is in front of us within 24 hours, be it 3/4 cup (our current amount) or 2 cups. Doesn't matter. We like to snack and nap all day long if we can!
