People are saying that I am either chubby or fat. Now I fully support a cat's decision to be his or her "happy weight" and I stand against feline obesity (see: Meow). However, I am NOT a fat cat!
I possess the ideal body type of my Exotic Shorthair breed as determined by the Cat Fanciers' Association, which is a cobby or stocky build.
I have short legs:
A short and bushy tail:
And short a body. I also have small ears and a wide neck. Because I was a breeding cat, my head is large.
I now weigh approximately 8.20 lbs. I have gained a few ounces in my retirement, which is mostly the result of my new diet. I am on a prescription dental food to address my gingivitis. This food has "carbs".
I also require fiber since I am not a purrveyor of wet food. I do appreciate the gravy in Fancy Feast's flaked tuna which enables me to consume Benefiber. This has helped me to ::blush:: poop more effectively thereby stopping most instances of blood in the previously mentioned poop.
