My Cat Eats Too Much
'Matata", the glutton.
Persian Kitten Matata will be 8 months on 29-11-2009 and he is a "Eating Machine". Matata copies each and every behaviour of his dam Matahari including her suicidal "cat walks" on the window and gallery ledges. He is an EATING MACHINE, worse than a starving street feral cat, and the reasons are beyond my comprehension.
This has made him obese and he resembles a cuddly toy teddy bear with his brown colour and affinity to stand up on his two legs occasionally. Please, could cat fanciers and breeders guide me as to the reasons for his tremendous gluttony? Is it a genetic defect? Is it bad for his health?
At present he is absolutely normal, a mischievous and inquisitive kitten. In this photo he is mimicking a bear, standing on his hind legs.
