Huge Norwegian Forest Cat and he is overweight as well — 5 Comments

  1. 20 pounds for a Norwegian Forest cat is pretty normal, but a total of 58 pounds like this one? C’mon. I feel sorry for the cat. He could be prone to diabetes, renal failure, heart failure, severe arthritis, cancer – any number of maladies. Hopefully, he’s neutered. Beautiful boy but he needs a diet fast and she needs to make him move, slowly at first until he builds stamina. Wishing both much success. It’s obvious she loves him very much.

  2. What is the American equivalent to 2 stone? I think I saw a story of this cat on TV, with the owner not getting proper advice from two vets as to why the cat’s so overweight. If this is the same cat, these vets did all kinds of tests with the result being the cat was healthy, but were at a loss as to why it was so big. The minute I saw that I thought ‘DUH!’ the cat’s eating too much! It’s not rocket science. Apparently, the third vet said just that; cut back on the food – no biscuits, and limit the dry – no free-feeding. My own two cats lost considerable weight by feeding measured wet and dry food, with little to no treats. They each get 3-ounces of wet food and 1/4 cup of dry food twice a day. If one doesn’t finish their food, it’s picked up so the other won’t eat it. Simple.

    • 2 stones = 28 pounds. He is a huge cat though who’d weigh around 20 pounds anyway even if he was fit. You’re right. Some people don’t realise how much they are feeding their cats.
