Miss Bailey was a big girl when I adopted her 2 years ago and she has steadily grown to be a little over 30 pounds. I'm trying to get her to shed the weight by controling how much she eats, rather than leaving a large bowl of food for her to graze on. Miss Bailey is strictly an indoor cat and it is hard to get her to exercise, so I hope the portion control strategy will work.

Zulu, 9 years old, 22 pounds! He doesn't eat that terribly much, but he doesn't exercise a lot, either. My husband and I bought new, taller cat furniture and encouraged him to run up and down with limited success. He seemed to enjoy the new activity for the first few days, then, like people who quickly abandon exercise programs, he got bored and tired. Our other three cats could each stand to lose a couple of pounds, too, so we are looking into new ways for them all to become more active. Us, too!

This is Hakeem Wallace Ellis with my dad, Gordon Wallace Ellis (my dad doesn't think it's very cool to have a cat named after him). Hakeem hit a high weight of 30 pounds last year so I brought him to the vet who put him on a calorie-restricted diet I call the Catkins Diet. Hakeem has lost six pounds in the last seven months and is now a slim (?) 24 pounds. He has about five pounds to go. For the most part Hakeem's taken it pretty well, but he will knock over the garbage if he feels like he's starving, and he complains loudly more than ever!

This is Ivy, she is a 5 year old Maine Coon cat. She tops the scales at 16.1 lbs right now. Since she lives with another smaller cat, it is hard for me to cut down on food. I have been playing with her more and only feeding them when they both start really begging.

This is my nephew, Joshua, and our two boys-Cisco on the left and Sam on the right. They weighed over 20 lbs. in this picture, and this is a couple of years ago. They have not been weighed since so I don't know how much they weigh to date. They are approximatetly 5-6 years old and don't realize they are cats. They only eat one scoop of dry cat food a day and one small can of canned food at night. They never get scraps, and our vet actually said that Sam was just a "big boned kitty". We play with them, but they are inside 24/7 and simply maintain/gain weight.

This is Snoopy and he is about 22 lbs. I have tried to get him to exercise but that isn't working too well. He loves to eat and when he does, he lays by the food bowl and the water bowl instead of sitting. We moved into a 2 story house so he now has to go up and down the stairs and I am hoping that will help him shed some weight

This is Morris shortly after I adopted him, when he tipped the scales at almost 25 pounds. Poor little guy couldn't even fit into the bed I bought for him! Thanks to a strict diet, lots of exercise around the house and regular insulin (he's diabetic), he's lost more than 9 pounds-- and counting! He's healthier and much happier, and now has a much, much longer life to spend with us. Not to mention he can finally fit perfectly in his bed!

This is Sox. Nick name: Fat Sox Sox is a 25lb Maine Coon Cat. We got him at a shelter in California and all that they told us was that he was a long haired cat. He was TINY. We never expected him to be bigger then our dog. (King Charles Cavalier) It didn't take very long for us to realize he was going to be huge and that he was Maine Coon. The bizzare thing is that we ended up moving to Maine. We have had to fly with him twice and had to put him on a diet both times because pets can not weigh more than 20lbs when they fly with you in the cabin. He does not like this at all and prac

This was our "fat cat", Buddha. Ironically, the name was not due to his girth but rather his serene and loving disposition! This was evident when he was a tiny kitten, long before he grew into such a big boy at twenty pounds. Sadly, Buddha passed away in November 2005 and will always be missed. He was never much of active sort and his belly sloshed to and fro the few times he ever went any faster than an amble. He never complained about much in life and obviously had a pretty easy time of it.

23 lb Junior was found as a starving skinny stray 10 years ago in -25F weather. Like Scarlett, he vowed he'd never be hungry again! Any attempts to cut down on his food intake only increase his fabric consumption, (he has actually eaten an entire blanket) and make us and the other 3 normal sized cats crazy!

My Georgie loves to eat eventhough his daily diet is restricted to bunny pellets, hay and fruits and vegetables. How one gains weight on such a diet is a mystery to me. I encourage Georgie to exercise as much as possible and discourage naps, although evidenced by this picture, it is a habit he will not break in the near future. I chase him (and he chases me) around my apartment and I take him outside to run around on the roof. At this point, I consider him big-boned rather than obese and although there is much of him to love, pun intended, he is a very active bunny.
