Choosing dry or wet food for cats makes little difference
Date:12/3/2007

dency towards obesity than cats on dry food diets.

Forty percent of all cats in middle age are overweight or obese. According to Backus, male cats should weigh between 10 and 11 pounds, and female cats should weigh between 5.5 and 7.7 pounds. Besides diabetes, overweight cats are prone to other conditions such as skin diseases, oral diseases and certain cancers. When cats are spayed and neutered, they have a tendency to eat more and gain weight. Backus suggests monitoring the food even more closely at this time and not allowing the cat to eat in excess.

The most effective thing you can do is be the one who determines how much your cat eats, Backus said. We have been conditioned to fat cats, but cats should have only between 18 percent to 20 percent body fat.
